Congrès Boréal

A French language convention that moves to different locations in the province of Quebec, Canada every year.

While most of the programming and activities are in French, some are in English and the convention has had English speaking GoHs.

It was first held in Chicoutimi in 1979. In the 1980s., it was often held in conjunction with a "Salon du livre" (a book fair), while for several years in the mid-90s, it was held in conjunction with Con*Cept

The Prix Boréal are voted on by the members of the convention and are usually awarded at the end of the convention.
