From November 11th to 13th, 2018, the Delegation of Quebec in Chicago (DQC) participated in North America’s largest private label food and beverage show alongside around 30 exhibiting companies from Quebec. The week prior, around a dozen companies also made the trip from Quebec to Illinois for a “Taste of Canada”, a gourmet B2B event successfully organized by the Consulate General of Canada in Chicago in collaboration with provincial partners, including the Quebec Delegation in Chicago and the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Food (MAPAQ)’s Market Access Office. Quebec’s Chicago Office was represented by Molly Bañuelos, Commercial Attaché for the Food and Beverage sector.
Our Québec Government Representative here in Chicago speaks to Mitch Teich, host of Milwaukee's public radio station WUWM's Lake Effect on the impact of tariffs for Wisconsin jobs. Listen to the interview HERE.
Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.
(Fall, leaves, fall by Emily Brontë)
Following the death of Mr. Bernard Landry, premier of Québec (2001-2003), the Government of Québec is publishing a book of condolences so that all Quebecers and friends of Quebec who wish may express their support to Mr. Landry’s family and loved ones may do so. https://bit.ly/2PkxXOq
