Since 1962, more than 5 million visitors have enjoyed the beauty of our historic gardens and the contemporary gardens of the International Garden Festival. With its botanical collections, historic buildings, its site overlooking the St. Lawrence and Mitis rivers, the Gardens are a leader in Canada and abroad. The Gardens were declared a National Historic Site in 1995.
The Gardens provide employment to more than eighty local residents every year. Les Amis des Jardins de Métis does not receive an operating grant from the federal, provincial, regional or municipal government. Every year we must raise more than $375,000 in donations from visitors, members, friends, corporations and sponsors to preserve this unique garden and to meet our ongoing expenses.
All donations are amplified by Mécénat Placements Culture du ministère de la Culture et des Communications and/or Endowment Incentives – Canada Cultural Investment Fund.
Funding may double your donation.
For instance, a $ 100 donation may become a net benefit of 300 $.
All donations are managed by Fondation du Grand Montréal. They go directly to initiatives related to sustainable development, land preservation and to the International Garden Festival.
Many thanks for you generous support.
