The SDC du Quartier Montcalm is proud to once again be joining this year’s Saint-Patrick’s Day celebrations in Quebec City. For the occasion, a program of activities comprising services and demonstrations with an Irish flavour has been created to celebrate this event. Area businesses will also be offering certain products and experiences.
The mission of the Société Développement Commercial du Quartier Montcalm is to develop strategies to guarantee the commercial vitality of its neighborhood. Funded by its members, the SDC promotes the recognition and reputation of the commercial sector while creating an environment conducive to the prosperity and long-term survival of its members. It sets itself apart with a brand image around the designation “Quartier des arts”. This is embodied in the cultural spaces found there, the street furniture set up in the district, in public events and the promotions that the SDC orchestrates.
