The Montreal St. Patrick's Day Parade is being held on Sunday, March 18th from 12-5. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent the following message to the United Irish Societies of Montreal, who organize the annual parade:

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 195th St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Montreal, hosted by the United Irish Societies of Montreal Inc. (UISM).

For the last 195 years, Montreal has hosted one of the world’s most extraordinary St. Patrick’s Day Parades in celebration of the our Irish/Canadian community and their rich cultural heritage. This joyous gathering draws countless thousands of people to join in the festivities, and this year is no exception.

I wish to especially recognize and thank the many hardworking volunteers of the UISM, without whom the St. Patrick’s Day Parade would not be possible.

Please accept my warmest welcome and best wishes for a memorable parade!
