Le ParliamentaireThe Parliament Building is one of the key works of Eugène-Étienne Taché (1836-1912). The quadrilateral building surrounding an inner courtyard was constructed between 1877 and 1886 in the Second Empire style and is unique in North America. Although Taché drew his architectural inspiration from the Louvre in Paris, he also set out to design a building that would tell the story of Québec. The imposing fountain at the main entrance pays homage to the Amerindians, Québec’s first inhabitants. Here too are a pair of remarkable sculptures by Louis-Philippe Hébert, Fisherman with Spear and A Halt in the Forest. The statues decorating the main facade of the Parliament Building represent men and women who shaped the history of Québec, from the discovery of Canada by Jacques Cartier in 1534 to the birth of Confederation in 1867.
The President’s Welcome Reception will be held in Le Parlementaire, the restaurant of the Parliament Building. A guided tour of the Parliament Building will be offered during the evening.
Le Parliamentaire was inaugurated on December 4, 1917, and was called the Café du Parlement until 1970. Designed by architects Omer Marchand and Georges-Émile Tanguay in the beaux arts style in vogue at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries, the restaurant is remarkable for its high ceiling, majestic columns, richly ornamental decor and contrasting colour scheme.
