Memory Collector, collector sewer
Moment Factory

2016-2017 Annual Campaign

Together, we can create a magical experience, by converting the first collector sewer in Canada into a memorable immersive experience. Your donation will help bring the Memory Collector to life!

Running beneath rue Place d’Youville in Old Montréal, the first collector sewer of its kind in Canada will become one of the city’s key tourist attractions, thanks to you. The tunnel will be given a new vocation, as a constantly evolving work of art inviting visitors on a journey through Montréal’s living memory. This will be your gift to Montrealers and tourists to mark the city’s 375th anniversary: an immersive experience they will long remember!


To acknowledge your support for the Foundation, we would like to invite you to an exclusive event, specially organized for you!

If you make a donation of $100 or more to support the creation of the Memory Collector, you will receive an invitation to a festive evening to be held in 2017.
