Archéo-Québec was founded on January 21, 1999, by some thirty individuals, organizations and institutions with an active interest in Québec archaeology.
Their aim was to pool information and resources, as well as to contribute to the preservation and dissemination of Québec’s archaeological heritage. A consensus was quickly established among the participants, united in their conviction that they should create an action-based structure through which they could plan and co-ordinate their efforts.
Today the Network is a not-for-profit organization with some 100 members, all dedicated to enhancing awareness of Québec archaeology. The organization makes every effort to educate the public about the importance of understanding and safeguarding Québec’s archaeological heritage.
