The Grunt Club Inc.
The Grunt Club was established in 1931 and, today, is Montreal's premier marine community. Our membership is comprised of people from every facet of the shipping industry and related fields in Montreal. The primary purposes of the Club are to promote fellowship amongst its members, provide networking opportunities and give back to worthy causes in the community.
Each year, the club hosts a number of events. These include a curling luncheon, two golf tournaments, a family picnic, a children's Christmas party and the Annual Dinner. This last is the gala event of the year! It brings together over 1,300 members and guests from around the world. The proceeds from all of these events, including the dinner, allow the Club to provide financial support to several great causes, such as:
- The Mariner`s House: An institution that provides comfort to seamen of all nationalities visiting the Port of Montreal
- The endorsement of a scholarship fund in recognition of the scholastic achievements of deserving students at L`institut Maritime du Québec à Rimouski.
Seafarers arrive in port without transport and Mariners’ House – a haven for seafarers and a registered charity – drives them to and from their ships, free of charge, seven days a week. After nearly nine years, transporting close to 100,000 seafarers, Mariners’ House must replace its bus.
The Grunt Club will be donating $5,000 to help the Mariners’ House continue their critically important work.
You can make a personal donation by contacting Mariners’ House!
