Conseil des Métiers d’Art, Cégep du Vieux-Montréal partner on building restoration program

January 6, 2021
Conseil des Métiers d’Art has partnered with Cégep du Vieux-Montréal to offer a course to train stone masons, carpenters, and cabinet-makers to maintain Quebec City’s heritage buildings. The 15-week course, which will be taught by distance and in-person, will cover how to assess buildings and appropriate interventions based on the building’s construction and style. “We noticed that this expertise was on the way to being lost,” said France Girard, project manager in architecture and heritage at the Conseil des Métiers d’Art. “The preservation and transmission of this know-how is directly linked to the preservation and transmission of our heritage.” CBC (QC)
