The Rectory of Oka dates back to the time of the grant of the Seigniory of the Lac des Deux Montagnes by King Louis XV to the Society of the Priests of Saint Sulpice on October 17, 1717. As of this date, the Sulpicians construct there the buildings needed to serve to the Native People. In 1734, they permanently moved there the Mission of the Mountain founded in Montreal.

The present rectory was built in 1923 to replace the one destroyed by fire. Until 1997, it served as the residence of priests serving the parish church of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary and the place of relaxation for Sulpicians of the Montreal region.

Today the Rectory serves as:
  • a house for relaxation and vacation of the Sulpician confreres
  • a meeting place for the formation of seminarians of the Major Seminary of Montreal
  • the place of the Solitude: a training program for candidates to the Society of the Priests of Saint Sulpice coming from the French and the Canadian provinces.
