One reason for this is likely cultural, based on the traditions and the values of the population. Another is that Montreal, and all of Quebec, provides subsidies to schools based on enrolment. 

That support is reflected in the quality of the schools. It has also encouraged the growth of a student population that's one of the most varied in North America and the world. This population comes from a wide range of socio-economic, academic, and cultural circles.
