Our community never stops innovating, so Concordia Firsts are updated monthly — from 1974 onwards.

To celebrate Concordia’s 40th anniversary, we combed through archives, newspaper clippings, news releases and official publications to discover what Concordians achieved first in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and the world.

Concordia Firsts were produced by University Communication Services and Advancement and Alumni Relations in partnership with Records Management and Archives.
