The Montreal Urban Community (MUC) (Communauté Urbaine de Montréal — CUM) was a regional government in Quebec, Canada, that covered all municipalities located on the merged into the megacity of Montreal on January 1, 2002.


The supra-municipal level of government provided public transit service and police services. The MUC was first succeeded by Montreal Metropolitan Community (MMC). Since the merger and subsequent demerger, the MUC has been replaced by the Montreal Agglomeration Council. This left the MMC in place, so the Agglomeration Council is a supra-municipal entity between the municipal level and the regional municipal level.
