·1 min read

MONTRÉAL, Jan. 18, 2021 /CNW Telbec/ - Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED)

To support organizations in the tourism sector and prepare them for an eventual recovery, the Government of Canada will announce financial assistance in several regions across Quebec on January 18 and 19, 2021.

Soraya Martinez Ferrada, Member of Parliament for Hochelaga and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, invites media representatives to a press conference on support for the Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal and the Festival Juste Pour Rire.

The announcement of this CED financial contribution will be made on behalf of the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages.

Tourism is a major economic engine in Quebec generating many jobs. This sector was hit hard due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the impacts could last several months, and even years.

Date:
January 19, 2021

Time:
9:30 a.m.

The press briefing will be held online through the Zoom platform.

Journalists must confirm their participation by registering at the following address: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_u94BoW76TByIGWsHYRHyAw.
