By working in collaboration with respected organisations that share our values, Parks Canada is able to better deliver its promise to Canadians by continuing to be a world leader in the protection and presentation of Canada’s natural and cultural heritage. We believe in sharing leadership and working with our partners to offer unique, inspiring opportunities for Canadians to discover our treasured places and to achieve extraordinary results.
We are proud to be formally collaborating with the following partner:
Communauto was founded in Québec City in 1994. The company has a social, environmental and urban vocation. In addition to being the oldest car-sharing company in North America, Communauto was the first car-sharing organization on the North American continent to offer 100% electric cars to its customers, and to offer two types of car-sharing service (with and without reservation). Its service is based on the pooling of more than 2,000 vehicles. Communauto’s network is growing and is now present in 7 cities in Canada: Kingston, Ottawa, Gatineau, Montréal (Laval and Longueuil), Québec, Sherbrooke, Halifax, and, since 2012, in Paris.
The Compagnons (Facebook page in French only) have been in existence since the first years of activity of the Louis S. St. Laurent National Historic Site. Over the years, they have worked on multiple activities held within the historic site or in the St-Laurent garden including the organization of the Vieux-Métiers en Héritage and the Week-end des Saveurs. Even today, volunteers working with the Companions continue to work diligently to support the mission of the historic site and the dissemination of its heritage. The Compagnons are partnered with the Louis S. St. Laurent National Historic Site to increase the quality and scope of the services offered to visitors.
Since 2006, the Comptonales (Website in French only, English version coming soon) have been mandated to raise awareness of the agri-food industry artisans and artists of the RCM (Regional County Municipality) region of Coaticook (including 12 municipalities) within a context that promotes proximity with the general public. Visitors can sample the products of the region and interact with the producers. The Louis S. St. Laurent National Historic Site participates as a partner in this gourmet festival.
