dc.description The Plateau or Plateau Mont-Royal is a part of the city of Montreal, just north of downtown and east of Mount Royal. Part of the borough of Le Plateau-Mont-Royal, the Plateau is one of the most densely populated neighbourhoods in Canada, with nearly 100,000 people living in a 7.75 square kilometre area. The Plateau was formerly a working-class neighbourhood, with the Eastern part being largely French-Canadian, and the Western part largely Jewish. The neighbourhood was the childhood home of Quebec writers Michel Tremblay and Mordecai Richler and both have set many stories in the Plateau of the 1950s and 60s. In the 1980s, the area's bohemian aura and proximity to McGill University attracted gentrification. Rents increased, and many of its traditional residents were dispersed to other parts of the city. It now is home to many upscale restaurants and nightclubs.; The Plateau or Plateau Mont-Royal is a part of the city of Montreal, just north of downtown and east of Mount Royal.
