The passenger lists have recently been put online at
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/archivianet/passenger/index-e.html.
They are not indexed by name, but if you know the date (or at least
the year), it should be easy to find your GGPs - the port of Montreal
was closed in the winter, so each ship only docked there 4-6 times a year.

Moreover, if you know (or once you know) the ship arrival date, there
were separate manifests filled out for all passengers who said they
were US-bound. These manifests tend to be more complete than the
Canadian manifests (which list all passengers regardless of
destination). The manifests are included in the St. Alban's lists.
Note that I am not referring to the St. Alban's card index, but the
full manifests that they point to. Although in theory, the index
SHOULD include all passengers who are in the manifests, there are
examples where they are missing. But with the name of the ship and
date, you can go directly to the manifest.
