Nov 15 2016, 10:22 pm

In case the increase of moustaches on your male friends wasn’t enough of an indication, this month marks the beginning of Movember. An annual fundraiser to raise awareness for prostate cancer, the Movember Foundation, as well as others, holds events around the world in an effort to “change the face of men’s health.”

Canada is always a major participant and thus its no surprise that Montreal is set to host a myriad of Movember-themed events this month.

From comedy nights to barbecues, check out 9 Movember events happening in Montreal.
