Visiting status

As of September 26, all Quebec institutions are closed for visits. This is a proactive measure to protect against possible introduction of COVID-19 into our sites. More information.

Find out if the institution you want to visit is open or closed. The chart below indicates which institutions are currently open for visits. Visits must be booked at least 48 hours in advance by contacting the institution. If you do not book an appointment we will not be able to contact you if the visit ends up getting canceled due to a lockdown or other reason. If, at any time, there are new or suspected cases of COVID-19 in an institution or unforeseen circumstances at the site, this could affect visitations. You should always confirm your visit with the institution before travelling.
