Québec City’s strategic location on the banks of the St. Lawrence River provides the perfect vantage point to welcome leading-edge ocean-related companies — including Canada’s largest shipbuilder — and world-class research centres. The Port of Québec, one of the top five in Canada, sees 28M tonnes of merchandise shipped through its commercial zone annually. The city is also known for its maritime tourism sector, with more than 1,300 ships ferrying 236,715 visitors into the area.

Noteworthy Innovations

The Canadian research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen has been instrumental in revitalizing Canadian Arctic science by giving researchers and their international collaborators unprecedented access to the Arctic Ocean. The ship’s facilities and sophisticated equipment make it a versatile research platform for scientists in the natural, health and social sciences along with their partners from government, industry and northern communities.

We’ve hosted many ArcticNet Annual and Arctic Change meetings over the years and the staff, service, size, facilities and location of the Québec City Convention Centre is amazing.
