The Eparchy of Saint Maron of Montreal Maronites is a Montreal Eparchy which was canonically by Pope John Paul II on August 27, 1982. It is located on Grenet Street, and is directly subjected by the Holy See. The bishop is Joseph Khoury. An East Eparchy is the equivalent of a diocese.
Most of the faithful Maronites arrived in Canada from mainly Lebanon over 3 major immigration periods between 1860 and 1914, 1930 and 1960, 1970 to 1980, and 1989 to 1991. The Maronites brought a rich culture to their new homeland and retained their religious affiliation in a society which had become mainly agnostic.
The College of Antonin of the Lebanese Maronites is inside the Eparchy. He first built a monstery in the region in 1985 which is the Monastery of Saint Anthony the Great on Ducharme Avenue in Outremont
