The free public open house will begin on Thursday, November 5, and continue through Saturday, November 14, 2015, every day except for Sunday, November 8. The cultural celebration will be held Saturday, November 21, and the temple will be dedicated Sunday, November 22, in three sessions.


Temple Renovation

On Monday, June 2, 2014, the Montreal Quebec Temple closed for a complete renovation of the interior and exterior. The structure has been reinforced, replacing the original wood framing with reinforced concrete and steel. And major repairs have been carried out including remediation of a mold problem. In addition, the ordinance rooms have been decorated with beautiful landscape murals, and the exterior was slightly altered to give the edifice an updated appearance.


Temple Facts

The Montreal Quebec Temple was the sixth temple built in Canada and the first built in Quebec.


Groundbreaking Ceremony

In his comments at the groundbreaking ceremony held in the empty garage of a vacated automobile dealership which was removed before construction begins, Elder Coleman of the Seventy and second counselor in the North America Northeast Area presidency encouraged members to "come often…come with the family…come with the family names…in establishing the Lord's temple in Montreal."

President Benoit Duquette of the Montreal stake remarked that when he joined the Church in 1975, members from the area drove 45 hours to attend the Alberta Temple in Cardston or would fly to the Swiss Temple. Since 1990, members have traveled for six hours to attend the Toronto Ontario Temple.

"As we stand here this morning," said President Walter Svenson of the Mount Royal stake, "although the spot is still without form, with our spiritual eyes we can see a…fountain of potential blessings, a hill of personal challenge and the mountain of the Lord's house, foreseen by Isaiah."

Gerard Pelchat, the first stake president in the Montreal stake, remembers telling friends in the Toronto temple a year ago of his desire for a temple in Montreal. "I never dreamed it would happen, let alone this soon," he said (Church News, 17 April 1999).

"I am deeply interested in this work. I am anxious to encourage the people to press on in securing their genealogies and after doing so in laboring in our temples."
—Heber J. Grant
