Québec City's Archaeological Master Plan

Author(s): William Moss; Daniel Simoneau; Michel Plourde

Year: 2013


The City of Québec is developing an archaeological master plan for its territory which  includes four legally-defined historic districts, one of which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The plan is being developed in the context of renewed provincial heritage legislation that will come into force in October 2012, and of the adoption of a revised urban master plan required under provincial legislation. The archaeological master plan will be accompanied by policy and programmes designed to foster public and promoter participation in the process. This paper will examine the methodology developped for the predictive modelling and will address challenges to policy and programme development.
