3 Unstructured Learning Hours

The tour presents the eastern neighbourhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve with a significant historical background, when it was created as a separate city in 1883 to later become annexed to the city of Montreal after World War 1. Today, Hochelaga-Maisonneuve features prominent preserved examples of its success in applying ideas of the City Beautiful movement and how such heritage sits within a contemporary context of increasing new development.

Hochelaga-Maisonneuve is today re-experiencing a wind of prosperity, similar to what was experienced at the time of its foundation, with its challenges and opportunities.

This tour highlights the principal historic buildings in the neighbourhood, which includes the Marché Maisonneuve, Caserne LeTourneaux and the abandoned church of Très Saint-Nom-de-Jésus.

Join Intern architect, Emad Ghattas for a 2-hour walking tour of this fascinating Montreal neighbourhood.
