From 2013 to 2015, thanks to major financial assistance from the public authorities, the Fiducie carried out the rehabilitation of the Hôtel-Dieu de Québec monastery. It built a museum reserve, and created a location dedicated to remembering the Augustinian sisters from Quebec’s 12 monasteries.

A visit to Le Monastère des Augustines is a unique occasion to interact with history in a heritage haven of culture and wellness. Its innovative concept relies on the past to offer an adventure inside oneself with a contemporary feel, where health and culture meet. It includes a museum, archive centre, meeting rooms for groups, and 65 monastery-type hotel rooms.

According to the wishes of the Augustinian sisters, Le Monastère offers a respite to caregivers, supports health service workers, and welcomes companions of patients from remote areas.

Le Monastère des Augustines, and the people who manage and bring it to life, have garnered unanimous praise since its opening. It is an exceptional location which has been awarded numerous prizes.
