Located on the picturesque grounds of the Douglas Institute, and only 15 minutes from downtown Montreal, Douglas Hall has an amphitheatre and two meeting rooms plus a multipurpose reception hall on its lower level.

Douglas Hall was constructed in 1912 and served as a recreation centre for patients. Extensive renovations made in 2001 hold true to Douglas Hall’s original classical design and earned the Institute the Prix Orange 2001 from the Sauvons Montréal heritage organization.
