Quebec budgets $100 million for new foreign policy, offices in Cuba, Philadelphia

Quebec is setting aside $100 million over five years to support its first new foreign policy program since 2006.

Premier Philippe Couillard says Quebec is being affected by international events more than ever before.

He said today the 2017-2027 foreign policy will be centred on three objectives.

They are making Quebecers increasingly prosperous, contributing to a more sustainable and just world, and promoting the province’s culture and know-how.

More specifically, Couillard says Quebec will focus on LGBT rights, radicalization and climate change.

The province is also planning to open offices in Cuba and in Philadelphia.
