Quebec outfitters are ready to welcome their first visitors in a safe manner
Quebec, May 27, 2020 – The Quebec Outfitters Federation enthusiastically welcomes the Quebec Government’s announcement concerning lodging resumption in outfitters as of June 1st.
Over the past few days, several Quebec outfitters had the opportunity to gradually reconnect with their clientele for daily fishing and outdoor activities. This partial return to activities has enabled outfitters to finalize the sanitary measures necessary in ordre to receive the first visitors in a safe manner in accordance with Public Health requirements.
Responsible and Safe Activity Resumption
Several procedures have been developed to ensure worker and client safety in outfitting facilities. “Since the measures are now well set up and since fresh air and space are not lacking in outfitters, opening for family accommodation is the next logical step in the progressive resumption of activities in a responsible and safe manner for everyone. ”explains Marc Plourde, CEO of the Quebec Outfitters Federation.
For a Change of Scenery
“The outfitters are ready to welcome you. They were eagerly awaiting the green light from the authorities. ” emphasizes Mr. Plourde.
With the deconfinement and the restrictions alleviated, Quebecers will be invited to get away with their families, as a first step and then with friends, to rediscover the many attractions of Quebec’s territory.
The outfitting adventure represents an alternative that is safe, exciting and relaxing, allowing people who have been confined for several weeks to enjoy a change of scenery and reconnect with nature.
It is also a great opportunity to reconnect with local businesses and make a tangible difference in the daily lives of extraordinary entrepreneurs. These Quebecers who have turned their passion into a profession and built their stories to the rhythm of their clients’ experiences with memorable first times and unforgettable memories of their stays.
