The Notre Dame served as the first cathedral of the Diocese of Montreal from 1821 to 1822e. It is located on 110 Notre-Dame St W Montreal, QC H2Y 1T2.

Notre-Dame Church was raised to the status of basilica by Pope John Paul II during a visit to the city on April 21, 1982. The Notre-Dame Roman Catholic Church was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1989.[7][8] The Gothic Revival style Basilica is a Montréal landmark, 1823-29.

On May 31, 2000 the provincial state funeral for former Montreal Canadiens superstar Maurice "Rocket" Richard was held in front of thousands, both inside and outside the Basilica.

On October 3, 2000 Justin Trudeau gave his eulogy just steps from the High Altar during the state funeral of Pierre Trudeau, his father and Canada's 15th prime minister.[10]

It was also the setting of Celine Dion's December 17, 1994 wedding to René Angélil
