Dates of existence



The Irish Canadian Heritage Society was founded in February 1965 in Pointe-Claire, Quebec, by Fred G. Sullivan, following the example of the Irish American Heritage Society, which was established a few years earlier. First president of the organization was Fred G. Sullivan, followed by Rory O’Sullivan. With the change of the presidency, the society’s headquarters moved to Baie-D'Urfé, Quebec.
The mission of the Irish Canadian Heritage Society was to “foster a knowledge of Ireland and its cultural institutions and an appreciation of the Irish contribution to the Canadian way of life.” The society held regular meetings to which they invited guest speakers to present various subjects related to Ireland and the Irish in Quebec.
