The night is haven for diverse cultural expression and brings together various artistic communities meeting at the intersectionality of race, sexuality and demographics.
MTL 24/24 is a non-profit organization that bridge the gaps between various cultural players in Montreal nightlife. The goal is to unite, mobilize and support those players in a variety of ways.
We aim to promote communication and exchange between our members, bring their voices and interests to public instances and develop the influence of night culture through education activities.
Our objectives are to liberalize the current legal framework to allow the opening of new cultural markets, destigmatize nocturnal activities, support the local scene, allow a dialogue between the nocturnal cultural environment and political authorities, enhance night nightlife and participate in the global spread of Quebec’s night culture.
Our association comprises professionals and users of cultural events and places whose main activities take place between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Our mandate is to:
– form a governance body – the Night Council – to represent the interests of Montreal’s night culture and voice them to the aut
– offer various services to support artists and promoters;
– organize educational activities for the general public in order to discuss social issues linked to cultural night life;
– finance research on nightlife and cultural policies;
– produce events that promote Quebec’s night culture;
– develop structural projects for the benefit of Montreal’s nightlife as a whole;

Created by MTL 24/24, the Night Council is a concertation table focussing on Montreal’s nightlife issues, in which 12 Montreal citizens contribute to a dynamic and benevolent development of the city’s nocturnal activites. Its mission is to facilitate the creation of public policies adapted to the realities of nocturnal economic and cultural activities.
Its mandate is to:
1- offer, on its own initiative or at the request of the City of Montreal, advice and opinions on any matter relating to Montreal nightlife and submit recommendations;
2- solicit opinions, receive and hear representations from any person or group on issues relating to the concerns of nightlife users;
3- create working committees to advance projects.
