About Québec City
Recognized by UNESCO as a World heritage, Québec City is definitely one of the most beautiful in all of North America. Québec is unique in North America and serves as a bridge between European and American culture. The city charms by the beauty of its landscape, its architecture and by the dynamism of its activities.
The people of Québec City are known for their warmth and their strong French culture and heritage. You can find many excellent restaurants and a multitude of cultural events in Québec City. Many traditions still prevail in Québec, such as ice fishing, Québec winter carnival or sledding in the winter, apple picking and corn boils in the fall or the Sugar Shack where maple syrup is made during the spring.
Université Laval campus is a main hub for the city's network of buses. Modern, comfortable, double-length buses stop at the main student union building and bring you to the main areas of the city in a short 15 minutes, thanks to special bus lanes throughout the city. Bus transportation in the city is clean, efficient and safe and regularly used by professionals, students, and all levels of society.
Universite Laval is one of Canada's leading Universities in terms of research and international cooperation. This university can trace its origins to 1663 when the King of France Louis the XIV granted authorization for its creation, making it the first institution in North America to offer higher level education in French. Today Universite Laval has pioneered in program assessment and strategic planning, and remains at the vanguard of the internationalization of teaching and research. Yearly Universite of Laval attracts more than 2000 foreign students and many out of region Canadian students.
