LES AMIS DE LA MONTAGNE ARE REGIONAL FINALISTS OF THE
GRANDS PRIX DU TOURISME QUÉBÉCOIS 2010
Montreal, February 10, 2010 - Les amis de la montagne are thrilled to have been selected as regional finalists of the Grands Prix du tourisme Québécois 2010 in the “Outdoor and Leisure Activities” category for their project “The Mount Royal Interactive Map”.
The Grands Prix du tourisme Québécois was founded by Tourisme Québec and its partners to recognize the expertise of the Quebec tourism industry. The 2010 edition, the 25th, will honour the associations and companies that have demonstrated outstanding leadership and innovation in their endeavours.
The award winners will be announced at a regional gala on March 24th and will automatically become the Montreal region representatives for the Quebec-wide awards ceremony to be held on May 7th.
Les amis de la montagne created The Mount Royal Interactive Map in order to trigger the visitor’s desire to discover the richness and uniqueness of the mountain. Live online since October 2008, Les amis de la montagne have made innovative use of interactive technologies that help to interpret Mount Royal, its heritage elements and historic characters, ultimately to encourage the conservation and perpetuity of this exceptional site.
The Mount Royal Interactive Map was made possible through the participation of the ministry of Heritage Canada, the Ministère des Affaires municipales et des Régions and the Ville de Montréal and the ministère de la Culture, des Communications et de la Condition féminine as part of the Entente de développement culturel de Montréal, as well as the expertise of our partners in technology, the companies SedNove and Lichen Communications.
Les amis de la montagne would especially like to thank Mr. Raymond Bachand, Member for Outremont, Minister of Finance and Minister responsible for the Montreal region for his support of this project, as well as the 16 institutional and association partners on Mount Royal that contributed to the realization of the site.
