Québec Government Office in London celebrates its 50 years!

The United Kingdom is among the first countries with which the Government of Québec wished to forge ties. To that end, Québec opened a permanent representation in London as early as 1962. Over the years, the Québec Government Office in London has increased the number of opportunities to promote the expertise and creativity of entrepreneurs and artists from Québec. As a result, the United Kingdom is now one of Québec’s leading international partners.

Throughout the year, activities marking the 50th anniversary of the Québec Government Office in London will showcase the extensive ties shared by Québec and the UK.
