About us

Mission of the Société du parc Jean-Drapeau

The mission of the Société is to administrate, operate, develop, maintain and animate Parc Jean-Drapeau, which includes Sainte-Hélène and Notre-Dame islands in Montréal. In carrying out its mission, the Société oversees the staging of regional and international recreation-tourist activities.

Parc Jean-Drapeau stages many recreation-tourist attractions that make it a unique site in Canada, enhanced by the fact a subway station services the park.

This outstanding park, which was created at the time of the world's fair, Expo 67, attracts sports enthusiasts, young families, culture aficionados, nature lovers and visitors who attend its international events. Its areas of attraction are enlivened by concerts, sports events and major festivals that contribute to its diversity...all this a mere five minutes from downtown Montréal!

The Société du parc Jean-Drapeau is a paramunicipal organization established by the Charte de la Ville de Montréal. In 1999, the Parc des Îles de Montréal was renamed Parc Jean-Drapeau, in honour of the man who was the mayor of Montréal for 30 years (until 1986) and the one who brought the world's fair, Expo67, to the city. In 2005, the Parc's corporate name officially became Société du parc Jean-Drapeau.
