Leisure & culture
Thematic and cultural outings
Going out, discovering your neighborhood, your city is the best way to harness all the potential that Quebec holds on a cultural, social or professional level. We offer you a rich program of leisure activities with an artistic and historical flavor, discoveries of traditions, summer vacation centers for families, neighborhood cultural activities and events, etc. In particular, we offer Café meetings on the history of Quebec, as well as a range of other activities to discover Quebec.

The intercultural duo consists of establishing a link between a newcomer and a welcoming Quebecer through meetings, cultural and leisure activities over a variable period depending on the affinities and interests of each. Raising awareness of diversity and inclusion to achieve “living together” are the major objectives of this program.
