Almost 50 years ago, Montreal was host to Expo 67, one of the most successful world fair’s of the 20th century.

The fair hosted 62 nations to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation.

To relive this exciting moment in Canadian history, the Centre d’histoire de Montréal is putting together an exhibition on youth at Expo 67.

It is looking for photographs, amateur films, souvenir items, and personal memories from anyone who was between the ages of 11 and 21 from 1967 to 1969 and who attended Expo 67.

To participate in this walk down memory lane, send your momentos to Catherine Charlebois (catherine.charlebois@ville.montreal.qc.ca) or call her at 514 872-3284. The exhibition’s success relies on your participation!
