PETITE-RIVIERE-SAINT-FRANCOIS — Club Med has unveiled the first renderings of its first resort in Canada, Club Med Québec Charlevoix resort, coming in 2020.
The renderings, pus new project details, were announced at a recent open house organized by Club Med and Group Le Massif, joint partners on the new development to be located in the community of Petite-Rivière-Saint-François.
“Club Med is pleased to meet with its stakeholders to seamlessly establish itself in the community and support economic development in the magnificent Charlevoix region,” said Carolyne Doyon, Senior Vice President for Canada & Mexico at Club Med. “We are thrilled to see several local entrepreneurs and professionals show interest in collaborating with us to offer our future visitors an authentic Charlevoix experience over all four seasons. Beyond discovering the mountain, they will get a glimpse of the region and its activities, delicacies and people.”
Both companies are working together with local stakeholders to offer clients a variety of experiences in Charlevoix. Inspired by the region’s beauty, the resort’s design is reflective of the surrounding landscapes, colours and climate. Quebec design firm Lemay Michaud brought fall and winter scenes to life through stone and wood carvings within the resort’s structure.
Additionally, Club Med is pursuing two recognized sustainability certifications for the $120 million resort, which will be a 4 Trident ski property and the company’s very first Canadian venture. With the certifications, the company hopes to debut the first hotel structure in North America to comply with strict BREEAM environmental standards.
Said David Meyer, Project Director, North America, Club Med: “Maintaining the Massif and the region’s distinctive character is an important cornerstone of our development plans. We’re true to our values of social responsibility and sustainable touristic development and we know the Club Med Québec Charlevoix project is in line with these values.”
