Planning a trip to Quebec some time soon? Are you interested in knowing more about the diverse English-speaking communities with deep roots in the heartland of French Canada?
Heritage Trails is a series of pocket guides that take you to historic towns and villages, cultural landmarks and little-known points of interest that tell about Quebec’s English-speaking heritage in 20 regions of this fascinating province.
Learn the story of the Irish in 19th century Montreal by walking through old Griffintown. Explore Old Quebec City during its heyday as a port of entry for hundreds of thousands of immigrants to North America. Drive out to admire the rolling farm country, old mill towns and manufacturing centres of the Eastern Townships and discover why it reminds visitors so much of New England. Find out the Channel Islands heritage along the Gaspé Coast and how the little Saguenay River Valley town of Arvida–named after American industrialist Arthur Vining Davis–helped the Allies win World War II.
Copies of the original Heritage Trails publications are an exclusive benefit for new members of the Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network (QAHN). However, anyone with an interest in Quebec’s local and regional history will find these introductory guides indispensible. Consult the entire list here.
Or become an individual member of the Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network for just $30 a year and receive the whole set of 20 Heritage Trails brochures with our compliments, at no extra cost.
