International Ideas Competition

International Ideas Competition

The City of Québec is launching an international ideas competition, Rethinking Our Rivers, to collect distinctive, innovative proposals on developing Québec’s waterways.

Québec City is well known for its vibrant culture and historical heritage. Now the time has come to focus on its rich natural heritage, especially its rivers, with a view to transforming them into a new, must-see Québec City attraction.

Four Rivers to Rethink:
There are four rivers—the Cap Rouge, Saint-Charles, Beauport, and Montmorency—within City limits. Each has its own specific characteristics, but all are major tributaries of the St. Lawrence River. In this sense, each has played a key role in the city’s ongoing development. Now the goal is to breathe new life into these rivers by giving them a major boost.

Competition Website:
A bilingual competition website,, is now online to provide specialized firms from around the world with the information they need to prepare their submissions. The website presents the four rivers and provides guidelines on the approach to take in drawing up proposals.

Payment of the $200 registration fee unlocks access to another section of the website containing a wealth of detailed information, including river development plans, maps, photos, and useful links.
