Les amis de la montagne is an independent registered charitable organization, founded in 1986 by people from a variety of associations allied with the heads of philanthropic foundations and company presidents. All share the same passion, that of preserving and enhancing the mountain.
The Centre de la montagne was founded in 1981 with an environmental education mission, implementing measures to encourage the preservation and appreciation of Mount Royal.
The Centre de la montagne and Les amis de la montagne merged their activities in 2006 and operate under the banner « Les amis de la montagne ».
Today, Les amis de la montagne is the instigator of advocacy initiatives, education and awareness-raising programs and improvement and enhancement projects.
