Gouvernement Quebec

Québec is the largest province in Canada, spanning an area of 1,542,056 km². Its capital is Québec City and its largest city is Montreal. Québec has more than 8 million inhabitants (2020), making it the second most populated province in Canada, behind Ontario. Francophones compose a large majority of its population. In this day and age, when the supply of critical, strategic minerals is becoming a global issue, Québec’s diversified mineral resources make it a land of promise, recognized both for the quality of its expertise in exploration and mining, and for its sound socio-environmental practices. With the Québec Plan for the Development of Critical and Strategic Minerals 2020-2025, Québec has all it needs to create sustainable wealth and position itself on the world economic stage. On the energy front, Québec laid the groundwork for a greener future. Québec’s electrical production is already significantly carbon-free due to its extensive hydroelectric resources and the energy policy it has set for 2030 also aims to promote the responsible use of hydrocarbons, improve energy efficiency, and stimulate the technological and social innovation chain.

We wanted to put Québec center stage in the 2021 edition of GEODAYS, and to pave the way to a long-term partnership with Pole Avenia and our members, working together toward sustainable development objectives.
