What We Do...

Reenactment & Living History

The Quebec Historical Corps is an association of volunteers who portray the history of three 18th and early 19th century North American conflicts via five living history military re-enactment groups. Our members live mainly in Quebec, Ontario and the northeastern US, and our group operates both in English and in French. We are committed to representing history in a neutral and apolitical manner, so as to educate the public and develop a broader understanding of the everyday lives of the people we portray.

The QHC is involved in many events at historical sites, providing demonstrations of 18th century and early 19th century military and civilian life. Corps members are also available to present and animate discussions about history in schools and for other non-profit organizations.
