QUEBEC CITY

There are so many ways to describe Québec City and its distinctive personality: it’s a smart, business-savvy town, a cultural hub and an ideal place for walking, fine dining, and leisure all year round. With its unique blend of European and North American culture, Québec City belongs on every discerning traveler’s destination list.

Add our cultural vibrancy, robust economy, urban makeovers, international-caliber events, and stature within the Francophone world, and you’ll see why Québec City is ideally positioned for today and the future.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site and cradle of French-speaking North America, Québec is a modern city with a unique and exciting history. With a population of 677,000 in the greater Québec City region (95 percent of whom speak French), the province’s capital celebrated its 400th anniversary in 2008. In 2013, Forbes Magazine named Québec City second among the most affordable cities. It is a destination of choice for business and pleasure travel.

CONVENTION CENTRE

ocated in the heart of the city, a few steps from Old Québec and Parliament Hill, the Québec City Convention Centre offers a place to meet and exchange for more than 200,000 visitors every year. The Centre offers delegates a unique and exceptional experience. Inaugurated in 1996, the Centre received a facelift in 2014 and is now ready to welcome you in a high-technology environment. As well, its commitment to sustainable development allowed the Centre to become certified Silver LEED-EB (existing building) and BOMA BEST, Level 3.

Airport

The Québec City Jean Lesage International Airport – YQB – is located a mere 15 minutes from downtown Québec and the Québec City Convention Centre. Welcoming close to 2 million passengers every year, the airport serves several international destinations, with daily flights to Europe and the United States.

As its activities have grown, the airport last year launched a major project to expand the terminal and modernize its facilities. Rest assured, the work in no way impacts the comfort of the airport’s visitors, and its activities continue as usual.

Weather

The province of Québec has the distinction of having four well-defined seasons, each of which offers different landscapes and, of course, different temperatures.

In November, the temperature should fluctuate between 5 and 10 degrees Celsius (41 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit). The air will be dry and cold. The leaves will have started to fall, creating a magnificent carpet of red, orange and yellow. Wool sweaters, a jacket, boots and a light hat are suggested. If you plan to visit the city by foot, remember to wear comfortable footwear!
