President of Club Med, Henri Giscard d’Estaing shared this announcement alongside president and CEO of Club Med North America, Xavier Mufraggi, and SVP of Club Med Canada and Mexico, Carolyne Doyon.

The all-inclusive pioneer has witnessed exceptional growth in recent years and aims to open five resorts per year. The company also has plans to execute major renovations to its current resorts to offer new and refreshed experiences.

“On behalf of the entire Club Med team, I’m delighted to welcome Canada in to our product portfolio,” said Giscard d’Estaing. “In naming Club Med Québec Charlevoix we wanted to not only shine a light on the province of Québec but the incredible region of Charlevoix itself and contribute to its worldwide influence. We are proud to expand our presence to this exceptional area, home to breathtaking landscapes, fine cuisine and thrilling ski areas.”

A winter escape for Canadians

With 42,000 travellers to a Club Med village in 2017, Canadians can count themselves amongst Club Med’s dedicated clientele. These numbers will witness a sizable increase leading up to the launch of Club Med Québec Charlevoix.

Canadians and international visitors alike can look forward to the following:

  • 4-Trident Village with Exclusive Collection Space
  • The first-ever four-season Club Med Village
  • Only one hour from Québec City International Airport; in Charlevoix; with superb views of the St. Lawrence
  • An experience inspired by Québec, presenting the beauty of the region and its unique culture
  • A destination for families, couples and groups from different international regions

Overall, the Village will offer the same all-inclusive model that is already well known in the Club Med ski resorts in the Alps; including ski lifts and lessons, children's clubs from four months to 17 years old, meals and beverages, after-ski activities and activities, Wi-Fi and tips.

"We want to make this Village a winter experience, which will of course include skiing, but it will not be limited to that. We will offer a real immersion inspired by the region," said Carolyne Doyon, senior vice president, Canada and Mexico, Club Med. "The target audience is first Canadians, then Americans, Europeans and Brazilians."

What to expect

Guests at the resort will have access to a 7.5-kilometre toboggan run, a unique attraction in North America. Noticeably different from other ski villages, Club Med Québec Charlevoix will operate across the four seasons by offering activities adapted to each of the four climates.

The 4-Trident Village will have 302 rooms and a luxurious 5-Trident space with suites overlooking the river.

Rates for group bookings will be announced this summer, while individual bookings will be available in December 2019.
