During Expo 67, the world opened up to us and Montréal opened up to the world. The conversations, celebrations and encounters would make Montréal a city everyone wanted to visit and get to know. It had a major cultural impact on all Quebecers, me included.- Louise Latraverse

My parents met at Expo 67. My father is from Africa, and my mother is from Montreal. I am a living, breathing example of the impact this exhibition had on Québec and Montréal, but also of new encounters between people of all origins! – Philippe Fehmiu

For Montréal’s 375th anniversary, it is important to highlight an event that left an indelible mark on Québec and Montréal. It’s an incredible opportunity for every generation to relive this important moment in Montréal’s history. Those who experienced it can delve into their memories. Younger people can discover this major milestone, which was a forerunner of a knowledge base rich in innovations and that left a legacy that endures 50 years later. After all these years, we can still see the permanent traces Expo 67 left in many fields, such as architecture, design and fashion, as well as an openness to the world and the ability to live together in harmony that are so typical of Montréal. It’s a priceless legacy!Alain Gignac, director of the Celebrations of Montréal’s 375th anniversary
