Québec invests $ 91,274 in Chelsea’s religious heritage

“Heritage assets of a religious nature are witnesses to a large part of our collective history. They are, in all regions of Quebec, a source of pride and an element of cultural dynamism in communities. Today’s investment is a concrete gesture to confirm the value we place on them and our interest in preserving them. I also take this opportunity to highlight the mobilization of local stakeholders who, through their motivation and creativity, play a major role in safeguarding these jewels of our heritage.”
