6000 Fielding - Phase 2 - Header

The architecture of the 6000 Fielding Avenue in Montreal is outstanding. The development of building materials within this building demonstrates the commitment to enhance a lasting quality at the time. First occupied by the "Protestant School Board of Greater Montreal," this piece of art of the Borough of Côte-des-Neiges – Notre- Dame-de -Grâce was built in 1961. It was in 1998 that the building became the administrative center of the English-Montreal School Board.
