Welcome to the website of the Montreal Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). We hope you find what you’re looking for here.


The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) arose in England 350 years ago, under the leadership of George Fox and Margaret Fell. Friends upheld that there was an Inner Light or “that of God” in every human being. They denied “all outward wars and strife, and fightings with outward weapons for any end or under any pretense whatsoever”. The promptings of love we find within are the source of our Quaker commitment to human rights, global justice, prison abolition, sustainability and peace.
