In 1778, Fleury Mesplet founded a French-language newspaper called La Gazette du commerce et littéraire, pour la ville et district de Montréal.

Mesplet began a second weekly in 1785, La Gazette de Montréal, which was the direct ancestor of today's Montreal Gazette. The Gazette evolved from a French-language newspaper to a dual French-English format to the present English-only paper.
For many years, The Gazette was caught in a three-way fight for the English newspaper audience in Montreal with the tabloid Montreal Herald and the Montreal Star. This is a list of Quebec historical newspapers. 1760-1769 The Quebec Gazette/La Gazette de Québec, 1764 Quebec City William Brown The Montreal Star was an English-language Canadian newspaper published in Montreal, Quebec. The Gazette was second in circulation to the Star, which sold more newspapers in the city and had a significant national reputation in the first half of the 20th century. The Herald closed in 1957, after publishing for 146 years. The Montreal Star, part of the FP chain (which owned The Globe and Mail and the Winnipeg Free Press), was hit by a long strike action and ceased publication in 1979, less than a year after the strike was settled. The Globe and Mail is a Canadian English language nationally distributed Newspaper, based in Toronto and printed in six cities The Winnipeg Free Press is a daily Broadsheet Newspaper in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Strike action, often simply called a strike, is a work stoppage caused by the mass refusal by Employees to perform work.

In 1988, a competing English-language daily, the Montreal Daily News, was launched. The Montreal Daily News was a short-lived English language Quebec daily Newspaper. The Daily News adopted a tabloid format and introduced a Sunday edition, forcing The Gazette to respond. After the Daily News folded in 1989, after less than two years in operation, The Gazette kept its Sunday edition going.
In 1968, The Gazette was acquired by the Southam newspaper chain, which owned major dailies across Canada. Saint Catherine Street (now officially rue Sainte-Catherine) is the primary commercial artery of downtown Montreal, Quebec, Canada Canwest News Service is a national news agency with correspondents in Canada Europe Asia and the United States and is part of the Canadian Newspaper chain owned In 1996, the Southam papers were bought by Conrad Black's Hollinger Inc. Then in August, 2000, Hollinger sold the Southam newspapers, including The Gazette, to Canwest Global Communications Corp.

It is the parent company of Chicago-based Sun-Times Media Group, whose primary holdings , controlled by the Winnipeg-based Asper family. After the Canwest purchase, the quality of the paper declined precipitously and the number of staff was reduced.
To celebrate its 150th anniversary, The Gazette published a facsimile of one of its earliest issues. A facsimile (From Latin fac simile, "make like" is a copy or reproduction of an old Book, Manuscript, Map, Much effort was made to use a type of paper that imitated 18th century paper, with fake chainlines and laidlines to make the paper look old. 
Today, The Gazette's audience is primarily Quebec's English-speaking minority, which accounts for about 8 percent of the population of the province. Out of the four dailies published in Montreal, the other three being the French-language newspapers (La Presse, Le Journal de Montréal, and Le Devoir), The Gazette has the third largest circulation, behind Le Journal de Montréal and La Presse. La Presse, founded in 1884 is a large-circulation French-language daily newspaper published in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Le Journal de Montréal is a daily Tabloid Newspaper published in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and is the largest-circulation Le Devoir is a French-language Newspaper published in Montreal and distributed in Quebec and the rest of Canada. Many francophones (French mother tongue) also read English and more than half of the population of Montreal is bilingual. The adjective francophone (alternately Francophone) means French -speaking typically as primary language whether referring to individuals groups or places In recent years The Gazette has stepped up efforts to reach bilingual francophone professionals and adjusted its coverage accordingly. The publisher of The Gazette is Alan Allnutt, who served as editor-in-chief of the paper from 1996 to 2000. Its editor-in-chief is Andrew Phillips, a former editor of the Victoria Times Colonist who began his newspaper career as a junior reporter at The Gazette and later worked for CBC Television and Maclean's magazine. Andrew Phillips is a Historian from the ancient borough of Colchester in Essex in the East of England. The Times Colonist is an English-language daily Newspaper in Victoria British Columbia, Canada.
However, the Montreal Gazette isn't to be confused with the Hudson/St. Lazare Gazette, a free, weekly newspaper.
