Founded in 1958 in Montreal the Astronautical Society of Canada was originally named the Canadian Astronautical Society but changed their name to avoid being confused with the Canadian Astronautical Society in Downsview Ontario.

The business address was on Peel Street in Montreal and the President was Gordon R. MacGregor of Trans Canada Airlines. Henri Binet was the secretary. The group allowed amateurs as well as professional members. In 1961 it was claiming membership of 208 people. In July of 1962 it merged with CASI.
