Le Massif de Charlevoix's sustainable development and social commitment

Sustainable development has always been at the heart of Le Massif Charlevoix's development vision: limiting the number of lodging units, densification of reception infrastructures in order to avoid deforestation, optimization of existing facilities, selection of activities with the least impact on the environment, reduction of residual materials, energy-saving construction certifications ensuring its sustainability. In particular, the building layout was meticulously designed to respect the curves of the mountain and minimize the footprint.

For the years to come, we want to make commitments that reflect our mission and honor the pillars of our brand. Commitments that will not only define the touristic destination that represents us, but will also be a source of motivation and and inspiration to our employees, partners, community and
