There's A Growing Movement For Quebec City To Host The 2030 Winter Olympics

The Quebec 2030 committee has released a detailed plan.
There's A Growing Movement For Quebec City To Host The 2030 Winter Olympics

A committee called Quebec 2030 — which has more than 400 companies and 250 people supporting it — is pushing the government to submit a bid to host the 2030 Winter Olympics in Quebec City.

In a new 24-page document, the committee presents its arguments for why Quebec City is best suited to host the 2030 Winter Olympic Games — most notably, the lack of natural snow in South Korea at the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang

The committee was formed in 2019 following Calgary's formal withdrawal from the bid process for the 2026 Winter Games.

"A promising project such as the Olympic Games requires the global consensus of the entire population and its governments," the committee's website says.

"The committee is launching its campaign and invites each one of you to support the process by registering on the site, which will help convince governments to move towards a candidacy."

Quebec 2030 estimates that the Games would cost an estimated $5 billion. It also says it's important in this context that more than one city, or region, host the Olympic Games together.

This would be Quebec City's third Olympic bid at the Canadian level.
