The Ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie of the Government of Québec grants a financial support to the OWHC

The Ministère des Relations internationales et de la francophonie (MRIF) has decided to renew its financial support to the Organization of World Heritage Cities for the 2017-2018 fiscal year. MRIF Deputy Minister Robert Keating and OWHC Secretary General Denis Ricard signed an agreement for this grant. This financial support will allow the OWHC to optimize its communication tools to better meet the expectations of its cities and for the happiness of all World Heritage enthusiasts.

The financial support of the Ministry was announced to the members of the OWHC Board of Directors, during their meeting of 24-26 April 2018 in Kotor, Montenegro. Delighted with this support, they took a resolution to have the General Secretariat send a thank you letter to the Minister of International Relations, Ms. Christine St-Pierre (picture).

The OWHC expresses its gratitude to the Ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie for its interest in the organization and the enhancement of the urban World Heritage.
