The Government of Canada announces investments to support tourism in Québec
“These investments will enable communities and businesses in all regions of the country to develop tourism products and experiences to attract more tourists year-round. This will help communities big and small reap the benefits of the global tourism boom, to diversify their economies and create good jobs for middle-class families, while showcasing Canada’s brand, centred on shared values of diversity and equality.”
The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Tourism, Official Languages and La Francophonie
“The Government of Canada supports inspiring and unifying events that uphold Canada’s cherished values of diversity and inclusiveness the world over. This colourful festival allows us to celebrate the culture and pride of the LGBTQ2+ community and brings together people of all ages and backgrounds. Our government is proud to support activities that uphold this reputation while fostering respect and understanding in our society.”
The Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Member of Parliament for Québec and Minister of Families, Children and Social Development
“The Canadian Experiences Fund supports communities across the country in their efforts to create and enhance tourism products, facilities and experiences. I am thrilled with this tangible support for tourism in connection with the LGBTQ2+ community, which will result in benefits for our entire region.”
Joël Lightbound, Member of Parliament for Louis-Hébert and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Finance
