Québec Government Office in New York > 80 for 80
The Québec Government Office in New York was inaugurated in 1940 at Rockefeller Plaza. From the very beginning, this office played a key role in the economic development of Québec. Over the years, it has enabled Americans to learn more about Québec society, its economic pillars, its cultural life, its educational institutions and its tourist attractions. Every day, it contributes to the development and intensification of the historic relationship between two leading cross-border partners.
Today, the Québec Government Office in New York is Québec's main representation in the United States, one of the largest in its network of 33 representations around the world, as well as its oldest.
To mark the occasion, Delegate General Catherine Loubier has surrounded herself with a network of 80 Québec personalities or Québec allies who have accepted a very special mandate. In order to meet the clear objectives set by Premier François Legault, to increase Québec's exports to the United States and double private investment in Québec, each member of the network has committed to taking significant action for Québec. The sum of each of these actions will constitute a legacy for the future of the Québec-Mid-Atlantic relationship.
To stay connected to Québec, the network’s members, as well as other relevant partners, receive a monthly newsletter that includes economic announcements and news about Québec. This newsletter also highlights members' achievements.
Thematic webinars are also organized and allow members to get together to discuss ways in which to better promote Québec and strengthen the ties that unite Québec and the United States.
I would like to underscore the commitment of each member of the 80 for 80 years network.
The career path of everyone in this network is a source of pride for Québec and embodies the image of the special relationship that has been developed over the past 80 years between Québec and the United States.
The sum of the actions taken by the members of the 80 for 80 years network will help solidify this relationship and become a precious legacy for our common prosperity.

On June 4, 2020, we hosted a virtual ceremony to honor the ’80 for 80 years’, in the presence of the Minister of International Relations and La Francophonie, Ms. Nadine Girault.
On July 29, 2020, we organized a webinar with two hockey legends, Guy Lafleur and Stephan Matteau, to discuss the relationship between Québec and the United States.
To illustrate the deep roots of the Québec-New York relationship and to increase the influence of Québec expertise on American soil, motion videos illustrating aspects of cross-border collaboration on cultural, social and economic levels will be shared on the digital platforms of the Québec Government Office in New York and the Ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie.
For many years now, Québec has been a leader in the field of environmental action and decarbonization. Thanks to its diversified ecosystem, that includes innovative businesses, research centres, academic partners and government agencies, Québec has become the perfect partner on which neighbors and allies can rely. See for yourself how Québec can provide solutions to help achieve your decarbonization goals !
When you think of Québec, you might think of a little known sport called hockey. Québec is indeed the cradle of modern field hockey.On March 3, 1875, the first ice hockey game, with rules (and a puck), was played indoors, at the Victoria Skating Rink in Montréal. We are proud to have brought this sport to life and enjoy the rivalry that may occur between Québec and US teams on the ice, because this means that we share much more than a border, we share a common passion for all things hockey!
