The Archéo-Québec network: a review and forthcoming projects

Author(s): Nathalie Barbe

Year: 2014


Since 1999, the Archéo-Québec network has been working to raise public awareness of the importance of Québec’s archaeological heritage. Since the beginning, it has managed to engage the community by promoting synergy between various stakeholders in the cultural and tourism sectors. Now comprised of the driving forces in Québec archaeology, Archéo-Québec has some one hundred institutional and individual members dedicated to conservation, to research, and to highlighting our archaeological heritage. Archéo-Québec offers support and advice to its members, and coordinates unifying, high profile activities such as Archaeology Month, which offers an exceptional showcase for research projects and presentation venues throughout Québec, and now, in Ottawa (ON). With the implementation of a variety of projects (Web portal, training, education kits for schools, archaeological guides for municipalities, etc.), Archéo-Québec has become a key player in the field of archaeology in Québec. This lecture will provide a glimpse of the group’s achievements, as well as its upcoming projects.
