I think these planes are rotated among YUL, ORD and YYZ depending on the loads.
With respect to MX's Canadian destinations, I may be wrong but I think that while MX has great loads to YUL and to YVR most of the time, YYZ is a little weaker probably because of AC. Sometimes we get an A319 and a 767 on the same day from AC.

AFAIK, MX based on LF's, early in the week MX calculates and decides what will be the most apropiate A32X to cover their route system during the week. Depending on system reservations they can calculate and make equipment changes at the very last moment taking advantage and maximizing the fleet utilization.
MX currently has 6 A318s with pending deliveries of 4 A318s. BTW, Airbus has congratulated MX for having the best and highest time performance of A32X fleet aircraft utilization during the day averaging 12.2 hours.

Quoting Olympus69 (Reply 2): noticed that there were photos of MX 318s at YVR and YUL
I had no idea MX was flying the babybus to YVR as well, but now it makes sense: a friend of mine flew with his family to YVR about a month ago and he told me that he flew MX and that it was a very small plane (he seemed very surprised about it); my original impression was "sure, the A319 is a smallish plane but, come on, you've been on A319's many times before, so what's the surprise?" but now I understand that he was on an A318 instead. I have yet to fly one of them! Hopefully it will be soon. A friend told me MX sometimes sends the A318 to MID as well.

Quoting Flyguy1 (Reply 9): with 3 daily, and sometimes 4 flights, skyteam gets most of the traffic on this route
Actually it's more: 17 weekly AM flights (752 but every once in a while a 762ER or a 73W), 7 weekly DL flight (752) and 14 weekly daily CO flights (one 738 and one 73G). Besides, during the summer season, I think CO adds a third daily flight!
