Montreal ACTION 2016 – Our Best Yet!

We were delighted to welcome 425 guests, including 30 elected officials from all levels of government, to our 8th annual ACTION Party in Montreal at Le Studio, Griffintown.

It was truly a great night celebrating political engagement and support for Canada, Quebec and Israel.

We have so many people to thank for helping to make ACTION Montreal parties a success, including our generous sponsors (see below) and our hard working and dedicated ACTION committee members from Montreal and Ottawa.

Thanks to all those who attended; we look forward to seeing you again next year!
