The archives of the Society of the Priests of Saint Sulpice of the Canadian Province reflect the religious and civic roles of the Society and its members since 1657 until today. More specifically, these records reflect activities that manifest themselves in multiple aspects of religious, social, educational, economic and cultural development within Ville-Marie (Montreal). This archival patrimony is composed of about one kilometer of handwritten and printed textual records, more than 75,000 iconographic documents, about 8000 maps and plans, sound and film recordings. They include an intangible patrimony of customs and activities.

Research in situ: by appointment.
