Given the magnitude of the COVID-19 pandemic in the world and its impact on public health and the economy, Québec International has put in place, since the beginning of March 2020, various preventive measures designed to help maintain its business support services while also limiting the risk of spreading the virus. Considering the current developments and the new measures recommended by the authorities, our organization will be operating primarily with remote working, until further notice.
