Quebec City Wants to Promote its Heritage Status

Quebec City Wants to Promote its Heritage Status

Quebec City has launched an offensive visibility to promote the World Heritage Status of  City.

“We are giving visibility and we must accentuate the branding of this world heritage city,” announced Mayor Régis Labeaume during briefing.
He noted that the City missed the recent opportunities to promote this “prestigious” status, especially during the Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec and the Quebec Skiing Cup.
“This is not normal. When we invest, we must maximize the benefits so that distinction will be put forward, “said Mr. Labeaume.

“Assuming it is distinctive. We should know that if we go to that city, we will notice something different, “noted the mayor.
This will soon be displayed in key locations across Quebec, like the airport, the train station and in the ice at Place d’Youville.
Julie Lemieux, the Councillor in charge of records said that she wanted to address the fact that it “does not feel” like the historic district of Old Quebec is a heritage site.

Website for citizens

The City has also launched a website dedicated to the citizens and workers of Old Quebec improve the image of an area too often seen as a place where it is difficult to live.

By visiting http://www.ville.quebec.qc.ca/vieuxquebec/, people can find including information regarding traffic and events.

The municipality wants to convince residents to settle in Old Quebec.
“500 people have left the Old City in the last 10 years. It is dangerous,” noted the mayor with emphasis on the fact that it is dangerous.

He wants profit on the relocation of Hôtel-Dieu near Enfant-Jésusin in Limoilou, to bring more permanent residents into this neighborhood.
“There must be more people in Old Quebec,” he recalled.

The mayor reiterated his goal of transforming the current site of Hôtel-Dieu into residential units.

“Our goal is to bring at least 500 people to the Old City, because it is documented for all city centers that are losing people, the long-term consequences are serious,” said the mayor.
This week, the City will welcome the Board of Directors of World Heritage Cities.
