About us

Coopérative du Quartier Petit Champlain is made up of some 40 merchants who collectively own 29 buildings in the district. Each of the cooperative’s businesses must adhere to the coop’s mission in order to set up shop in one of its commercial premises.

Le Petit Champlain is a neighborhood shaped by the forward-looking, passionate people of this small corner of the city.


Quartier Petit Champlain is recognized as one of the most beautiful sites in Old Québec and is a must-see destination for visitors to the city. The pedestrian streets are especially magical in winter under a blanket of snow and with thousands of twinkling lights. But the district’s many boutiques and welcoming bistros offer a truly romantic atmosphere in every season.

To protect and promote the heritage of the Petit Champlain district as a commercial, cultural, and tourism hub by offering authentic, original, and unique products, with a singular focus on those made in Québec.
