Since 1996, every autumn, Quebec Days of International Solidarity offer with the support of the Department of International Relations of Quebec a 10 days program of activities, meetings and exchanges to better understand the challenges facing our planet and encourage the commitment to a fairer and more equitable world by the presentation of projects of international solidarity associations that mobilize Quebec daily, and this, in all regions of Quebec.
