Where we are

5151 Côte-Ste-Catherine Road
Montreal, Quebec H3W 1M6
(514) 345-2627

We are on the ground floor and lower level of the Maison Cummings (Cummings House) building, located at 1 carré Cummings Square - 5151 chemin Côte Ste-Catherine Road - on the northwest corner of Côte Ste-Catherine Road and Westbury Avenue. The building’s front entrance is on Côte Ste-Catherine Road.

Wheelchair access
The building’s front entrance, library entrance and premises, including washrooms, are fully wheelchair-accessible. In addition, there is an elevator inside the Library itself allowing access to our lower level.

How to get here

By walking, metro and bus
Take the Orange metro line (direction Cote-Vertu) and exit at the Côte Ste-Catherine stop (corner Côte Ste-Catherine Road and Victoria Avenue). We’re about a 5-10 minute walk west along Côte Ste-Catherine Road. Or, cross Côte Ste-Catherine Road and then take the 129 North bus and exit at Westbury Avenue. We’re right across the street!!

By car
From the North: take Decarie Expressway South (15 Sud) and get off at the Côte St-Luc Road/Queen Mary exit. Turn left at the first light (Edouard-Montpetit), turn left onto Decarie Boulevard and turn right at the first light (Côte Ste-Catherine Road). Continue 2 blocks until you see our building on the left-hand side.

From the South: take Decarie Expressway North (15 Nord) and get off at the Côte St-Luc Road/Queen Mary exit onto Decarie Boulevard. Continue straight on for 1-2kms and turn right, onto Côte Ste-Catherine Road. Continue 2 blocks until you see our building on the left-hand side.
(You can also follow the green signs with the "H" that direct you to the Jewish General hospital - these will lead you right past our building.)
