Originally built by the Sulpicians and local volunteers in 1861, Saint Joseph’s church was an inclusive place to meet, celebrate and find support. To preserve its history and legacy, the church was reinvented as Le Salon 1861 to reconnect people to collective space and break the silos between sectors of our society. A core project in the Quartier de l’innovation, the space currently houses a co-creation lab and coworking space and an event hall. All are available for local businesses, community groups and citizens seeking to network, share resources, train employees and create contacts.  

For more information (including how to lease workspace or host an event), see Le Salon 1861’s main site.
