It is my honour to serve as President of the St. Andrew’s Society of Montreal. I have been involved with the Society for the past ten years and remain inspired by our committed volunteers who work tirelessly to bring the very best to our members and friends. If you have landed on our website because you are exploring your Scottish roots, or simply because you are interested in learning more about all things Scottish, I encourage you to join us at our events: from big to small, there is something for everyone.
As a charitable society, we are dedicated to the assistance of Montreal’s Scottish community, to education, and to the preservation of Scottish arts and culture. I encourage you to visit the Outreach section of our website and learn more about our initiatives and how we may be of assistance to you.
Our annual charity ball was held in November 2019. Over $18,000 was raised at our Silent Auction for the Douglas Foundation for mental health research, support and care. It was a sold-out crowd and we are pleased to report that we had the highest percentage of “juniors” attending in recent years. This bodes well for the future of our Society. Many thanks to Scottish Affairs Canada for their support of the Ball. Photos of the night can be found here!
We hope to see you at our upcoming Burns Dinner in January and WhiskyFete in February – each event has its own unique flair and traditions.
The Great Canadian Kilt Skate has been moved indoors for 2020. Please join us for an afternoon of fun with kilts, bagpipes and a few figure eights on the rink!
We encourage you to consider becoming a member of our Society. Research your roots, you may find out, “You’re more Scottish than you think.”
