The Centre de conservation du Québec is a provincial institution attached to the Quebec Ministry of Culture and Communications. Its mission is to contribute to the conservation and restoration of Quebec's cultural heritage, including artefacts, art works, furniture, public art, etc. The centre helps to increase the visibility and the accessibility of such heritage to the greater public.

The mandate of the CCQ is to:

  • provide professional conservation services and expertise
  • raise awareness of preventive conservation in museums and in all other related institutions housing Quebec's cultural heritage
  • encourage the development of knowledge, skills and facilities relating to an optimum preservation of the Province's cultural heritage.

This section contains a few of the documents, publications and information currently available in English. New links will be added, as the English-language section is still a "work in progress".
