Join WAG-Qaumajuq Director & CEO Dr. Stephen Borys on a bespoke trip to Montreal and Quebec City!

Experience the art and architecture (and food!) of these great Canadian cities through the lens of directors, curators, and gallery owners of some of the country’s best public and private collections. Stephen has contacted his friends and colleagues in Quebec who are graciously opening their doors and sharing their expertise to give you a personal tour like no other!

Some highlights include VIP visits to Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, Musée McCord Stewart, Centre Canadien d’Architecture, and Power Corporation Collection in Montreal, and Musée national des beaux arts du Québec and Musée de la civilisation in Quebec City.

Spend three nights at the splendid Ritz-Carlton in Montreal, known for its thriving art scene. Then travel by coach to Quebec City, the crown jewel of French Canada, and stay two nights at the fabulous Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, enjoying several must-see art spaces. With breakfasts at these top hotels, special receptions, and unforgettable dinners to be announced, you won’t want to miss it!
