Opened in 1978 to promote Québec as a tourism destination in the U.S. capital, the Québec Government Office in Washington is responsible for furthering Québec’s bilateral relations with the U.S. federal government (Administration and executive agencies as well as Congress). It monitors legislative developments as well as the programs and policies of the U.S. federal government. It also provides information on the interests that Québec and its U.S. partners share on a broad range of issues. It creates opportunities for outreach and collaboration with universities, think tanks and opinion leaders especially in priority sectors for Québec such as trade, energy and the environment, security and transportation.

The Québec Government Office in Washington also has a mandate with regard to economic affairs and business development, providing advice and assistance to Québec-based exporters wishing to develop new opportunities in the United States. In addition, the Office assists U.S.-based companies wishing to invest in Québec and organizes trade missions to Québec for U.S. firms.

Finally, the Québec Office in Washington supports the work of Québec’s Scientific Delegate to the United States in her efforts to build collaborations between Québec and U.S. institutions in science and technology.
