Founded in 1824, the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec was the first learned society in Canada. Its history is linked to the intellectual development of the nation. The Society led the restoration of the Morrin Centre, which it now runs. The Morrin Centre is Quebec City's flagship English-language cultural centre.
The Morrin Centre draws on the resources of the Society's unbroken history of intellectual endeavor, its priceless historical collections, and the historic building that houses them. It strives to foster English-speaking culture in Quebec City, share it with the rest of the population, and encourage cultural exchanges in French and English. This cultural centre currently offers a wide range of activities including library services, guided tours, readings by prominent authors, discussion groups on stimulating topics, writing workshops, poetry classes, theatre and much more.
The Society is managed by a volunteer council composed of 13 people. They are elected by members at the Annual General Meeting. The Council meets on a regular basis to discuss or solve any matters related to the finances, management or by-laws of the Society. You can contact members of the LHSQ Council at email@example.com
