Press releases Services

The Québec City Convention Centre takes pride in aligning itself with the forefront of progressive organizations as it introduces free menstrual products in restroom dispensers across both the administrative floor and event spaces.

This inclusive and caring initiative offers peace of mind to users of the Convention Centre, blending seamlessly into the facilities, much like the provision of toilet paper and hand soap.

“We are proud to facilitate access to these essential products for our team members in their workplace, as well as for our event-organizing and guest clientele. Our industry is predominantly composed of women, as is our clientele at the Québec City Convention Centre, so this initiative was a natural step for us,” explains Ann Cantin, Director of Communications and Marketing at the Québec City Convention Centre.
