WELCOME TO QUÉBEC CITY!
The Canadian Association of Pathologists (CAP-ACP) is pleased to welcome the World Association of Societies of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (WASPaLM) to meet with us in Québec City in June 2013!
Quebec City is a crossroads of history, culture and nature on its commanding perch above the St. Lawrence River. Québec is one of the world’s most beautiful cities, and the Old City is a UNESCO World Heritage Treasure. Declared as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO in 1985, Québec City is the only city in North America to have preserved its original fortifications. The area’s European appeal and North American lifestyle, complete with a storied history, thriving arts scene, and vibrant French-speaking culture, make it truly one of a kind.
Check out the city’s action-packed cultural agenda and its lively club and restaurant scene on gorgeous Grande Allée and in the hip Saint-Roch district. There’s always something happening in and around Québec City! Often called the gourmet capital of North America, the city is also tops for great food in general, not to mention sidewalk cafés, bistros, and wine and cheese!
