Our Team

Our success depends on committed individuals who share the same passion for the protection of one of our city’s most precious landscapes. This stands true for our Board of Directors, governors and employees.

Since its creation in 1986, Les Amis de la montagne has drawn its strength, expertise and influence from its Board of Directors. Hailing from academia, philanthropic foundations and the corporate world, its committed members steer our course and help advance our mission to protect and improve the exceptional space known as Mount Royal.

Trained in environmental studies, architecture, urban planning and related fields, the core team of Les amis de la montagne is responsible for educational and outdoor recreational programs, nature conservation activities and advocacy work for the protection of the mountain. It also provides a range of services to Mount Royal Park visitors. Every year, close to 100 young people—students and recent graduates for the most part—join the team as seasonal and part-time employees to provide educational and outdoor services or work at the Café des Amis.

You can contact a member of our team by calling 514 843-8240.
