Heritage Montreal is a Canadian non-profit organization that is dedicated to the protection of the architectural, historic, natural and cultural heritage of Greater Montreal. It was founded by architectural activist and Canadian Centre for Architecture founder Phyllis Lambert in 1975. It was preceded by the creation of Save Montreal, a volunteer group co-founded by Michael Fish, formed after the controversial demolition of the Van Horne Mansion.
In October 2009, Heritage Montreal, Lambert and others announced that they would be participating in a think tank called the Institut de politiques alternatives de Montréal, to advise the city on a range of matters including urban planning, development and heritage.
