The Westmount Rugby Club is a Canadian rugby club based in Westmount, Quebec.
Despite McGill University having a team in 1874, Westmount, which claims to have been established between 1876 and 1878, it is the oldest independent (as opposed to college-affiliated) rugby club in North America.
The club later became associated with the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association (known as the M.A.A.).
In the 1930s, the Rugby Club split from the MAA, and changed its name to the Montreal Scottish RFC, and had a Scottish-only player policy. In the 1950s this policy resulted in the creation of two new teams of non-Scots in Montreal: the Montreal Wanderers RFC, and the Montreal Barbarians. Soon after, the club opened its memberships to non-Scots.
By the 1970s, the team had moved to Westmount, and had changed its name to the Westmount Rugby Club, officially incorporated in 1976.
The club continues to play in the B Division of the Rugby Quebec, winning the C division championship in 2011. The home field is Westmount Park field, in Westmount. It currently has one competitive men's team, one social men's team, one women's competitive/social team, a juniors program and a minis program.
