Launch of Architectural Competition for BAnQ Saint-Sulpice

The Minister of of Culture and Communications and the Minister responsible for the Protection and Promotion of the French Language, Mr. Luc Fortin, and the Mayor of Montréal, Mr. Denis Coderre, announced on January 11, 2017 the launch of a Québec-wide multidisciplinary architectural competition for the restoration of Bibliothèque Saint-Sulpice. In 2016, Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) was tasked by the Québec Ministry of Culture and Communications and the City of Montréal with reinventing the Saint-Sulpice library under the Entente sur le développement culturel de Montréal (agreement on the cultural development of Montréal).

This heritage building is located on Saint-Denis Street, in the heart of Montréal’s Quartier latin. BAnQ Saint-Sulpice, as it will be called, will open to the public in the winter of 2018-2019. As a library/laboratory, it aims to meet the needs of teenagers and focus on exploring new technologies. An incubator of projects and ideas for people of all ages in a vibrant community, BAnQ Saint-Sulpice will compare favourably with projects of the same nature currently in development all over the world. It will become a one-of-a-kind venue where the flow of programmed events will emphasize the building's great heritage value.

 

Martin Carrier is BAnQ’s Board of Directors New Chair

Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) is pleased with the composition of its new Board of Directors, announced last week by the Cabinet. Seven new members joined the Board, along with Martin Carrier, Vice-President of Warner Bros. Games Montréal, who will henceforth be Board Chair.

“I am delighted with our new Board as I know the members will assist me in achieving BAnQ's objectives, and I welcome Mr Carrier’s appointment. I'm sure he will use his tenure to share his passion for books and archives and his concern for young people and digital literacy,” said Christiane Barbe, BAnQ President and CEO.

“I am pleased to be joining BAnQ's Board of Directors, to help expand access not only to our libraries, but also to our archives. Today’s technology offers us previously undreamed-of power to take the vast stores of knowledge inside our libraries beyond the walls and bring it to life. I look forward to assisting BAnQ as it continues to play a leading role in this area,” said Mr. Carrier.
