  • A word from the Minister

The government of Quebec is pleased to support the 10th St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Quebec. The capital resonates to the beat of Irish tunes. Festival goers wear their most beautiful green costumes and stroll the streets of Quebec City, proudly celebrating their ancestry.

This communal event is waited for eagerly in the region and draws a large crowd, both young and old. It is a great opportunity to celebrate and pay tribute to the Irish community’s contribution to the provincial capital. Let us show we are proud of this important heritage that has shaped our identity.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you all!

Geneviève Guilbault
Vice-première ministre,
Ministre de la Sécurité publique et
Ministre responsable de la région de la Capitale-Nationale
