Eastern Québec’s Cultural Heritage Protectors

The regions of Eastern Québec have a rich heritage often linked to the sea, fishing and navigation. Over the years, our desire to share our history has led to the creation of numerous interpretation sites that open their doors to culture and heritage buffs. The fact that so many of these sites bearing witness to our past have been preserved is thanks in great part to the tireless work of true enthusiasts. Here are the portraits of four people who have taken on this preservation mission.

The Maliseet (Wolastoqiyik), Mi’gmaq and Innu are the first known inhabitants of the maritime regions of Québec. Today, they share their history, traditions and ways of life with us through fascinating interpretive activities. Find out more here!
