A celebration of history, the founding of the City of Montreal in 1642 originally Ville Marie is linked to where present day Musée Pointe au Callière is located.  In 1535, Jacques Cartier a French Navigator founded the surrounding settlement then inhabited by the St. Lawrence Iroquoians.

The City is a celebration of the immigration of both the French Acadian and English Loyalist culture.  It explores the difficulty of historic problems prior to the Confederation of Canada in 1867 between the Bristish North American Colonies and the French Acadian culture, then known as New France a state created after the French Wars of Religion 1562-1598.

The ‘Treaty of the Great Peace of Montreal 1701’ was signed between the Governer of New France, Louis Hector de Callière and 39 aboriginal nations including the Iroquois Confederacy, the Huron and Algonquin peoples.

The City is a celebration of Cultural and Industrial History.  The Lachine Canal Lock system designated National Historic Site of Canada and the founding of the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National Railway are historically linked to Montreal.
