Montréal, August 4, 2014 – On August 4, 1701, Louis-Hector de Callière, Governor of New France, and the delegates of 39 aboriginal nations signed the treaty marking the Great Peace of Montréal, on the very site of Pointe-à-Callière. This unique event was a decisive milestone in the history of Montréal and of international diplomacy.

To commemorate this historic episode, Pointe-à-Callière is launching an all-new virtual exhibition entitled 1701, The Great Peace of Montréal that immerses us in the fascinating story of this diplomatic and cultural saga, explaining its impact at the time and its repercussions on society today. This online exhibit was developed through a partnership with the Virtual Museum of Canada (VMC) at virtualmuseum.ca, an initiative of the Department of Canadian Heritage.
