Montreal Forum (French: Le Forum de Montréal) was an indoor arena located facing Cabot Square in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Called "the most storied building in hockey history" by Sporting News, it was the home of the National Hockey League's Montreal Maroons from 1924 to 1938 and the Montreal Canadiens from 1926 to 1996. The Forum was built by the Canadian Arena Company in 159 days.

The Forum holds a distinction as having been the home to 24 Stanley Cup champion seasons; 22 for the Montreal Canadiens and 2 for the Montreal Maroons. Including a 10-year span from 1951 to 1960 in which the Canadiens appeared in every finals, winning 5 straight and 6 overall in that span.

Other teams to call the Forum home include the short lived Montreal Maroons of the NHL from 1924 to 1936; Montreal Voyageurs of the AHL; Montreal Bleu Blanc Rouge and Montreal Juniors of the QMJHL. During the 1976 Olympic games it hosted Basketball, Volleyball, Handball and Gymnastics which included Nadia Comaneci's record breaking perfect 10 performance.
