Saint-Henri Square


Protection action

In 1992, as part of Montreal's 350th anniversary celebrations, Saint-Henri residents formed a committee known as Statue-ta-Fête to restore the fountain and the statue of Jacques Cartier and create a replica of the original. The original statue, in spun copper over wood, was moved inside the Place-Saint-Henri metro station. In recognition of its contribution to protecting Montreal's heritage, the Statue-ta-Fête committee was awarded an Orange Prize by Heritage Montreal.
