The Jane Austen Society of North America is an international, non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to the enjoyment and appreciation of Jane Austen and her writing. JASNA is made up of many regional groups that create their own local activities as well as participate in JASNA-sponsored programs.
Our members (about 4,000 in North America) come from all ages and backgrounds. Some are students and scholars, but most simply enjoy reading and talking about Jane Austen. We share a love of Austen and a delight in getting together with others to learn about and to celebrate her writings, life and times.
This website is dedicated to the Montreal region of JASNA. It includes upcoming events, a blog, and local news.
