Ange Loft’s installation project, Visibly Iroquoian, is on view in various locations throughout the CCA building until December 2023.

We look forward to welcoming you. Here are a few guidelines to follow:

Our opening hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 11am to 6pm, with Thursday until 9pm.

Appointments to our Study room must be made in advance by contacting ref@cca.qc.ca. Please refer to the following FAQ page for more information. You may also access our collection by browsing our holdings to see what’s been digitized.

We strongly encourage everyone to wear a mask while inside the CCA, taking care of the more vulnerable people in our community.

A checkroom is at your disposal, where we can put aside your bags, coats and other personal belongings.

As always, wheelchairs can be requested at the reception desk, and they are being sanitized after each use.

You will find seating areas in the public spaces, as well as in the exhibition rooms. You can also borrow a folding stool, which you can request at the reception desk. We sanitize the stools after each use.

We encourage the use of our audio introductions, which can be accessed on personal devices, using the public Wi-Fi network in the building.

If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or are feeling unwell, please take care of yourself and do not come in.

We accept payment by card and cash, both at the reception desk when purchasing admission and at the bookstore.

If you have any questions, please contact us at info@cca.qc.ca or +1 514 939 7026.
