    YMCA (Young Men's Christian Association) in Montréal

    7 years after the founding of the organization in London in 1844 by George Williams and 11 other companions occurs the founding of the Montreal branch of the YMCA in 1851. It was at St. Helen Street Baptist Church that was held the founding meeting. A few months later J. H. Winn is elected president. In 1853 the association rent for the first time a space in the Odd Fellows' Hall on St. James Street. It was not until 1873 that the association moved into its first building constructed on the edge of Victoria Square. This place was occupied until 1891 when the YMCA moved into its new building facing the Dominion Square until 1912.
