Companion Program

Québec City has four centuries of history, 400 years in which it became the city we now know, a city of rich and diverse urban activities, a cultural grandeur. Québec is inhabited by people from all over the world, who evolve in neighborhood lives and who participate in the French-speaking outreach.

Our delegate companions will have the pleasure to discover this capital with a program including visits, activities, a banquet and free time for the discovery of the many shops and museums located throughout the city.

Several activities are already scheduled, and others may be planned according to the group’s preferences.

 The inevitable
