An important chapter of parliamentary history began in 1792, when the first elections were called and the Members of the Chamber of Assembly of Lower Canada, or House, gathered in Québec City. To celebrate the 225th anniversary of Québec’s parliamentary institutions, this year, the National Assembly has instituted bold, original programming featuring:
- 1792. A Parliament is Born, a new exhibition
- 1792 : à main levée, a newly created volume
- Installation of a time capsule
- Four new engravings in the Parliament Building’s woodwork
