Venue: A haven of peace in the heart of the city, Le Monastère des Augustines is part of the historic Hotel-Dieu de Québec monastery, one of the most important classified heritage sites within Old Québec—itself a world heritage site. Respectfully restored, the original buildings blend harmoniously with the new construction's contemporary architecture.

A member of Healing Hotels of the World, Le Monastère is the site of the first hospital in America north of Mexico. It has been devoted to healing, learning, silence and spirituality for nearly 400 years. The facility is secular and was conceived and developed with a sustainable approach and was given by the Augustinian sisters as a legacy through an innovative business model. Le Monastère features a hotel with 32 boutique-style modern rooms, restored from former nun's cells; organic, local food; a beautiful retreat hall, a spa, a museum; and a boutique showcasing local artisanal products.

earned by the facility are reinvested to give respite to those who take care of others, including professionals from the healthcare and social service system, volunteers and family caregivers.
