Community Press releases

The Québec City Convention Centre is pleased to participate in DuoEmploi’s 2023 matchmaking program and offer an exploratory internship experience to Marie-Claude, a person with functional limitations affecting her vision.

The DuoEmploi project, set up by the Ministère de l’Emploi et de la Solidarité Sociale and the Conseil du patronat du Québec, enables people with disabilities to experience a day in the workplace with Québec companies.

On June 15, 2023, the Québec City Convention Centre will welcome Marie-Claude so she can join the greeting services. Supported by her internship mentor, Caroline Montpetit, Customer Service Coordinator, she will perform tasks independently, meet an anything but conventional team, and explore the ins and outs of the event industry.

The DuoEmploi project not only raises companies’ awareness of equal employment opportunities and inclusion but it also highlights the skills of people with disabilities and prepares them for integration into the workforce.

Every year, the Québec City Convention Centre puts a lot of effort into ensuring that the facility is accessible to people with restricted physical ability. But our commitment to inclusion and accessibility goes beyond that. By taking part in initiatives such as DuoEmploi, we can meet new talent and introduce them to our caring and profoundly people-driven work environment. We’re very much looking forward to welcoming Marie-Claude and hope that her experience with us will meet her expectations,” said Pierre-Michel Bouchard, President and CEO of the Québec City Convention Centre.

Québec Disability Week 2023

From June 1 to June 7, 2023, the 27th edition of the Semaine québécoise des personnes handicapées is taking place. At the Québec City Convention Centre, we believe that even the smallest gestures can make a big difference in promoting their social participation and enabling them to leverage 100% of their abilities. Our adapted and Kéroul-certified infrastructure, the accessibility of our website, and the importance we give to equal employment opportunities and diversity are some of the initiatives that demonstrate our inclusive values.
