Reflections on transformation

Since its founding 25 years ago, the Quebec Religious Heritage Council has been concerned with the phenomenon of the closure of places of worship and especially the phenomenon of change. The Council is very aware that the reuse of heritage buildings is an essential condition for their conservation. This is why the Council is initiating actions to understand this growing phenomenon and create opportunities for consultation. This measure, which is more inclusive and better adapted to needs, will increase the remarkable success of the Heritage Places of Worship Requalification Program.


Through virtual sessions, the Council wishes to give the floor to professionals from different backgrounds in order to share information and experiences related to the process of requalifying a place of worship. This privileged access to experts will make it possible to improve projects for the requalification of a place of worship. Several themes are discussed during the webinars.
