Our dear Canadian family,
We are filled with anticipation and excitement at the sound of our Father calling us to gather again in Montreal, Canada! As we celebrate the goodness of all that the Lord has done for us, we are deeply blessed and filled with gratitude at our rich inheritance in our nation. Now, our hearts are filled with hope and faith to see our destiny fulfilled!
We remember the covenant that was made many years ago in our nation between the French, the English and the First Peoples. This seed of unity, birthed here in Canada, was not only released, but multiplied into many nations and people groups. It brought transformation, healing and restoration and we witnessed increasing measures of the fulfilment of Jesus’ prayer for unity amongst the families of the nations.
He is once again calling Canada to come together as one heart, to enter His presence, and to renew our covenant of unity.
And we prophetically declare: “Canada, it is time to conceive again, birth another measure of unity and to be released into the fullness of who you are. Canada, you are a picture of the oneness of the global body, because all the nations of the world have come to find a home in your land. As you gather under The One King, your unity will be a foretaste of the alignment that will release kingdom authority amongst the nations.”

Montréal is the largest city in Canada’s Québec province. It’s set on an island in the Saint Lawrence River and named after Mt. Royal, the triple-peaked hill at its heart. Its boroughs, many of which were once independent cities, include neighbourhoods ranging from cobblestoned, French colonial Vieux-Montréal – with the Gothic Revival Notre-Dame Basilica at its centre – to bohemian Plateau.
Montréal is dynamic, culturally-diverse, and passionate. You’ll enjoy its energy and the friendliness of its residents! You will find here information about attractions, activities, events, gastronomy and accommodations.
The Palais – Close to everything
The Palais des congrès is conveniently located in the heart of Montréal near a plethora of attractions and famous districts, including Chinatown, Old Montréal, the business district, and the Quartier des spectacles.
There are 4,000 rooms linked to the Palais, and more than 14,000 within a 10-minute walk. Accommodations are easy to find, and easy to get to!
Due to competing events like The Montreal International Jazz Festival and Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations, hotel rooms are being booked quickly. We strongly suggest that you book your stay as soon as possible, noting that numerous hotel room bookings are non-refundable.

We are so excited that this summer we will be having a special time of connection as ‘Young People,’ two days before the Canadian Family Gathering: One/Un. Ever since our time in Jerusalem last year, it has been on our hearts to have an intentional time of building relationship with each other, coming into his presence in worship, and seeking his face on behalf of the nations and our generation in the context of our family. We are looking forward to a time of fun, growing and preparing our hearts together before the Gathering.
So, we invite all young people from across the nations (around ages 17 to 30) to come together in Montreal from June 26 evening to June 28 morning.
