Campaign to Support the Library Renovations and Window Restoration

A Campaign to Support John Abbott College

Built in 1907 as part of Macdonald College, the Library is the academic heart of John Abbott College.

In 2017, a Federal Strategic Investment Fund infrastructure grant for $3.6 M was approved to renovate and upgrade the Library, including a complete restoration of the 20 historic painted-glass windows in the facility.

This grant must be matched—50%—by the Provincial Government and John Abbott, hence the need for private support. The upgrades to the Library will have a tremendous impact on student study and meeting space on campus. The John Abbott College Foundation is undertaking a $750,000 capital campaign to support the renovations to this important landmark.

Situated on the western tip of the island of Montreal in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue,
John Abbott College is located on a sprawling campus in a rural setting just a half-hour drive from downtown Montreal.
