Reenactment of military life in the 18th century
On May 19 and 20, 2018, the Citadelle de Québec was the theater of a reenactment of military life in the 18th century with the École du soldat en Nouvelle-France.
For six years now, this activity has offered unique entertainment in an exceptional decor. It was an opportunity to revisit the French military heritage contained in the impressive fortress of Old Quebec.
For the 2018 edition, a record number passionate reenactors (more than 140!) Will offer you a glimpse of the life of a camp of soldiers of the 1750s in New France. In addition to military exercises, gunfire and skirmishes, no one will be immune to the smell of meals prepared over a wood fire. A real journey in time!
Plan already your arrival at the Citadette of Quebec on May 18 and 19, 2019.

The Onondaga project is a project of the Pointe-au-Père Maritime Historical Site (SHMP), a museum located in Rimouski, Quebec, Canada, to convert HMCS Onondaga, a submarine of the Royal Canadian Navy, disarmed in June 2000. Launched by the Canadian War Museum (CWM) in 2000, the Onondaga conversion project was abandoned by the museum in 2002 due to a lack of funding. The SHMP, which has been interested in a museum submarine project since 2000, is conducting a feasibility study in 2003 demonstrating the potential for profitability of the project and acquired Onondaga in 2005.
In 2006, the SHMP began working with governments to finance the project and meet environmental requirements. It also identifies the submarine installation site, parallel to the Pointe-au-Père wharf. This choice entails an increase in installation costs, forcing the museum to reduce the concept of the exhibition and to develop a haulage method using a rail to reduce costs. The SHMP finally gets financial support from governments in early 2008.
