LEGACY

The very nature of this major project and the impact it had in so many areas makes the legacy of Expo 67 hard to measure. Clearly, Expo 67 left its mark far beyond the site where it was held. It was instrumental for the entire City of Montreal as it led to the construction of infrastructures that were essential to the city's growth, such as the Décarie autoroute and the Hippolyte-Lafontaine bridge and tunnel.

In 1968, Expo even inspired the name of the then recently formed baseball team, the Montreal Expos. In addition, thanks to the annual Man and His World exhibition, the Expo site has become the beautiful Jean-Drapeau Park, a posthumous tribute to the person most associated with this great achievement.

Expo 67 contributed significantly to the sense of pride of Montrealers and Canadians in general. The spectacular success of this event had an impact on the collective imagination of visitors and Canadians alike, and has come to symbolize the excitement of the sixties.
