Board of directors

The Château Ramezay is a private, non-profit institution that was established in 1862 and incorporated under the name “Antiquarian and Numismatic Society of Montreal.”

The Board of Directors is made up of fifteen individuals, who are all volunteers and are elected by the Friends of the Château Ramezay. The board has the mandate to ensure the proper functioning of the institution, guided by the principle that the institution serves the public by developing and monitoring internal policies. It helps finance the Château by soliciting donations and sponsorships from the private sector as well as by holding fundraising events. In addition to its relations with various levels of government, it develops links with the outside world in order to keep in touch with community members. It encourages them to support the Château Ramezay and ensures staff for the board and committees. Members have a two-year, renewable term.
