Easy access to 35% of the North American population

Entrepreneurs who do business in Quebec City can tap into to a regional market of more than 1,000,000 people – the seventh-largest metropolitan area in Canada. The region’s strategic location also provides direct access to the north-eastern U.S. – one of the most lucrative markets in the world!

"Transportation infrastructure is one of the Quebec City region’s lesser-known advantages. The St. Lawrence corridor is a major asset for anyone in the import-export business. In addition, the road network is extremely well developed, with direct links to the rest of Canada and the U.S."
Florent Bélanger, President/CEO, Orphée

The Quebec City region’s 2,800-mile road network links directly with the U.S. border states, the Atlantic provinces and the rest of Canada.

Jean Lesage International Airport offers flights to more than 250 cities around the world. A large-scale modernization/renovation program is slated for completion by 2008.

Quebec’s modern rail system provides transcontinental access, including door-to-door capabilities and full intermodal services.

Open year-round, the Port of Quebec handles 22.5 million tons of cargo annually. Located nearly 900 miles inland, this deepwater facility is the gateway of choice to the North American market. Nearly 35% of the North American population lives within 600 miles of Quebec City!
