The event, which attracted about a hundred people from in and around Montreal, most of them representing heritage and cultural organizations, was held at the prestigious and historic Château Ramezay in Old Montreal.

Speaking on behalf of QAHN and its Montreal Committee (which organized the event), QAHN president Simon Jacobs welcomed visitors, mentioning some of QAHN's current initiatives.

QAHN is grateful to the Château Ramezay for allowing QAHN to hold its event at the museum. We could not have asked for a more beautiful location, and for more helpful staff. We also extend our thanks to "Les Marchands des Amériques Inc" for sponsoring the event and for providing us with the Leva brand of red and white wine, an excellent wine from Bulgaria.
