Young international leaders come to Québec

The third edition of the Young Leaders Program was held from May 16 to 19. This year, four young leaders from the United States and two from Mexico came to Québec and had a series of meetings with representatives from the Government of Québec, businesses, universities and non-governmental organizations.

Among others, the participants held discussions with Québec international President and CEO Carl Viel on the role of the organization as an economic development agency. They were also made aware of the Plan Nord by a representative of the Ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune.

In parallel with the joint program, one-on-one meetings were organized based on the interests of each participant in order to discuss various issues with Québec experts.

The young leaders were selected based on their political, economic and social involvement with well-known, influential organizations as well as their interest in priority areas for Québec, such as:

  • International relations
  • Economic development
  • Energy
  • Public policies


Young Leaders Program

The goal of the Young Leaders Program is to establish a constructive dialogue with the up-and-coming generation of American and Mexican leaders and promote a better understanding among them of Québec realities.
