Campground Members

Camping Québec is an association with more than 800 campground operator members from the private and public sectors who represent nearly 90% of the province’s campsites. Founded in 1962, its mission is to encourage and support the growth and development of the camping industry and promote camping as a recreational activity in Quebec. In addition, Camping Québec is the delegate of the Minister of Tourism for the registration of campgrounds in the province.

Social & Cultural Impacts

In addition to tangible and measurable economic benefits, a variety of social impacts are a natural result of the outdoor hospitality industry:

  • Celebrating Canada and its stunning natural landscapes by facilitating accommodation options in a variety of locations from coast to coast.

  • Camping provides travel and leisure options to a broad range of socioeconomic levels, giving more Canadians the ability to travel, enjoy nature, and make memories that last a lifetime.

  • Recent expansion of camping products and options in the Outdoor Hospitality industry has made the camping and RVing lifestyle more accessible and desirable to diverse demographics.

  • As demonstrated during the pandemic, exposure to the outdoors has a significant positive impact on the mental wellbeing of Canadians.
