Dear hotel members,

The Ministry of Health has detailed recommendations for hoteliers to ensure sanitary safety in your establishments. This document summarizes the good practices to be adopted specifically for our sector of activity. You will find the guide by clicking on the following link.
On Wednesday, Finance Minister Bill Morneau will announce the details of the wage subsidy program for businesses. We invite you to stay tuned to the announcement.

Premier Legault announced earlier this week the closure of several businesses on Sunday. Certain exceptions apply, such as convenience stores, gas stations and hotels. However, we would like to remind you of a few guidelines that may help you understand yesterday’s directive as well as Sunday’s directive concerning tourist residences:
The Department of Tourism has announced the closure of most tourist accommodation establishments.  Hotels can continue their operations, being designated as essential services for clienteles with needs related to public health directives.

“Being designated as an essential service” means that ALL hotels are an essential service and can remain open in accordance with public health guidelines.
On the other hand, the term “clienteles in need” includes health care workers, essential workers (truck drivers), vulnerable clienteles (e.g., domestic violence) and people in quarantine.

According to the announcement by the Minister of Tourism, all other types of tourist accommodation (such as cottages, rented second homes, bed and breakfasts and inns) must remain closed or close their doors as soon as possible.

We are continuing our efforts with the governments to find answers regarding economic assistance. Already on Wednesday, the Minister of Finance will detail wage subsidy assistance for businesses. We will keep you informed of developments over the next few days.
I would like to thank you personally for all your efforts and your resilience in the face of adversity.

Xavier Gret
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Quebec Hotel Association
