Canadian and American cities do not use the same metrics to calculate metropolitan areas.

The Combined Statistical Area ("CSA") does not have an equivalent in Canada. That is mostly because most Canadian cities are not large enough to have developed/grown into neighbouring metros and satellite cities.

Toronto's census metropolitan area, for example, has 5.6 million people over a mere 2,700 sq mi. It does not include Barrie, Oshawa, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph, or Niagara-St. Catharines, all cities within approximately an hours drive (and in the case of Oshawa, a mere 15 minutes from border to border) and all served by Toronto's commuter train network. Counting these areas, Toronto's "metropolitan" area population (and certainly the Maple Leafs market) would be over 8 million.

I suspect Montreal is similar, though obviously not to the same extent.
