Quebec City

Quebec City, the capital city of Quebec, has a distinctly European feel due to its historic architecture and French influence. Studying at CDI College's Quebec City campus means you'll be in close proximity to landmarks like Basilique Cathedrale - Notre-Dame-de-Quebec, the Citadel and Chateau Frontenac.

The CDI College campus in Quebec City is located in the downtown core of the city. Within minutes of the campus, students will find restaurants, cafes, and other amenities. Accessible by public transportation, those looking for a convenient place to go to school will love this campus.

A traditional event enjoyed by many from around the province is the Winter Carnival in Quebec City. Held in February each year, the festival is a wonderland of ice sculptures and buildings, dog sled races, parades, and concerts. A great event to take part in no matter which Quebec campus you are studying at!

About Quebec City

Things to do in Quebec City
The capital of Quebec and its second-largest city, Quebec City is one of Canada's most historic and fascinating cities. In fact, Quebec City is one of the oldest cities in North America and it still boasts the only remaining city walls that still exist in the Americas outside of Mexico. The city is also a cultural hub and is home to a thriving art and theatre scene.

Sports and Outdoors Activities

Whether you're looking for relaxation or adventure, Quebec City's parks and green spaces have a lot to offer. Just north of Quebec City is the Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier, a perfect destination for hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, and rafting. The Portneuf and Laurentians wildlife reserves are also a great place to get away from it all and have excellent camping facilities.

With over 400 kilometers of bike paths, Quebec City is a cyclist's dream city. If mountain biking is more your speed, the Portneuf, Cote-de-Beaupre, Ile d'Orleans and Jacques-Cartier areas all offer outstanding mountain biking and bike paths. You can also take your road bike for a relaxing tour through the countryside.

In the winter, there is still plenty to do in and around Quebec City. Quebec's Winter Carnival takes place each year from late January until Mid-February. The huge event features sleigh rides, outdoor movies, snow sculpture, ice skating, and more. Nearby Mont-Sainte-Anne is one of eastern North America's best winter resorts and is a fantastic place to ski or snowboard. From early January until April, the legendary Hotel de Glace opens its doors. This 36-room hotel is made entirely of ice.

Arts and Culture

Quebec City is best loved for its history and heritage. The walls of Old Quebec are even designated a UNESCO world heritage site. Also well-worth seeing are the Plains of Abraham (the "birthplace of Canada"), the Governor General of Canada's Official Residence, and the Quebec Parliament Building.

Quebec City is also the perfect place for art lovers of all kinds. The Musee national des beaux-arts du Quebec exhibits works from such hugely important artists as Rodin, Picasso, and Monet, as well as Canadian art such as works from Inuit and First Nations artists. Quebec City's contemporary theatre festival, Carrefour international de Theatre, runs from late May to mid-June and attracts some of the best theatre productions in the province.
