What is Montreal English Intergroup (MEI)?

MEI provides service to all the English OA groups in Montreal and surrounding areas. Within OA, individual members gather together to form OA Groups, also known as Meetings. Intergroup provides service to these groups and it provides information about OA to the local community. MEI meets on the third Monday each month at 7 pm. All members are welcome.
