An Impressive Collection

Since 2021, the Société de développement Angus has been involved in the FAR's (Fondation des archives et patrimoine religieux du Grand Montréal) Archive Centre project. Located in Old Longueuil, the centre will house the archives and collections of 14 different religious communities. It will be the largest religious archive centre in Canada, with a collection of 5 km of archives, objects and books in a row.
