Built in 1861 by the Sulpicians with the help of local volunteers for the community of Little Burgundy, St Joseph's Church was a place of gathering, celebration and support. Over time, the church experienced economic hardship and the community was challenged to save this magnificent building before losing an important part of local history.
The Salon 1861 was created with the aim of providing a collective space and breaking the islands of isolation between sectors of our society. Universities, entrepreneurs, local citizens, community organizations and private businesses will work side by side to redefine how we work, live and collaborate. The Salon 1861 attempts to bring together diverse groups to redefine social roles, in a non-traditional way, by creating a nucleus of entrepreneurship - reinventing the role of business. In times of financial austerity and growing economic division, the gem that is this historic building will return to its original intention of bringing people together.
In Salon 1861 is a full event hall, a restaurant offering local products and a “coworking” space that allows businesses, community organizations and local residents to network, share resources, train their employees and create contacts. The Salon 1861 also serves as an urban laboratory to conduct institutional research in green buildings and social entrepreneurship. The wide variety of actors present in Le Salon 1861 allows for a unique exchange of ideas and resources between the community, businesses and institutions. The building is also surrounded by an urban garden and holds several events, conferences and trainings for tenants and local residents.
