Institut de tourisme et d'hotellerie du Quebec (ITHQ)

Montreal, Quebec | Public University | Established 1968

About us

The ITHQ is a public school that offers a range of programs. To train students, the ITHQ relies not only on the expertise of its 100 instructors but also on the contribution of industry specialists and leaders. A culinary demonstration by Antonin Mousseau-Rivard, a round-table discussion with Christiane Germain, a champagne tasting with Vitalie Taittinger, or a surprise visit by Martin Juneau are all examples of opportunities for students to talk to and get inspired by the greatest names in the field.

The ITHQ is a small school with a big heart. Here, everyone knows everyone else, and students' education is personalized. This is the best place to develop close connections with the ITHQ family—a network that will follow students throughout their career. Studying at the ITHQ means not only learning a profession: it also means becoming part of a vibrant and warm community, just like the industry itself.
