The Society for the Celebrations of Montréal’s 375th Anniversary has joined forces with two official Ville de Montréal bodies, the Centre d’histoire de Montréal and the Archives de la Ville de Montréal. History consultant Martin Landry is in charge of checking and completing the celebrations’ historical content. Just like the promoters putting together the events with a strong historical focus, the Society brings in history experts whenever necessary.
