President's Message

The National Congress of Italian-Canadians, Quebec Region is a non-profit, apolitical organization founded in 1972 which unifies the numerous Italian Associations and groups of Québec. The dynamism of the Congress has established it as the official representative of the Italian community of Québec. In effect, our Québec chapter forms part of the National Congress which encompasses the many regional and district congresses across the country.
