Montréal, Quebec, April 29, 2022 The Honourable Pablo Rodriguez, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Quebec Lieutenant, on behalf of the Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities, and Ms. Nathalie Roy, Minister of Culture and Communications, announce $26,645,740 in funding for the creation of PHI Contemporain, a new cultural institution in the heart of Old Montreal.

The work will include restoring a number of heritage buildings, including the Pierre Du Calvet and Louis-Viger houses, as well as constructing a new building on vacant land. As important witnesses to our history, these buildings are located in the site patrimonial de Montréal, which was declared a heritage site in 1964. This site is the cradle of the current economic and cultural metropolis of Quebec. This territory retains the traces of its evolution, from the small colonial town until today. By showcasing these buildings, the Government of Quebec and the Government of Canada are pursuing their efforts aimed at bringing our built heritage to life.

In addition to production, dialogue and research spaces, PHI Contemporain will offer suitable venues to host exhibitions and art through new immersive media. Through this cultural and architectural project, PHI will be accessible to a greater number of visitors and will enhance the cultural offering in the Montreal area. The initiative will allow artists and artisans, from here and elsewhere, to exhibit their works, for the benefit of Quebecers and tourists.

In the context of this project, the Government of Quebec is investing more than $13.3 million. The Government of Canada is also investing over $13.3 million through the Community, Culture and Recreation Infrastructure stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program.
