Casino-de-Charlevoix is a Canadian casino resort that is situated in the picturesque Pointe-au-Pic. It is owned and operated by the Société des casinos du Québec and is affiliated to the Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu hotel.
Where It All Began
The casino resort began as just a casino in 1994. Judging from its location within the former Manoir Richelieu summer playhouse, it is clear to see that its owners were eager to impress. It offers a view that tempts many to draw near to it even if they have no desire to gamble.
Seeking to diversify their income, Canadian Pacific Hotels, Loto-Québec and the Solidarity Fund QFL turned their interest back to the Manoir Richelieu. They purchased it, renovated it and linked it to the casino creating a well-equipped resort complete with a 27-hole golf course. The renovation lasted for about a year and the resort was opened to the public in 1999.
Making a Difference
The Société des casinos du Québec that runs the casino is a part of the Government of Québec. It is mandated to run casinos in the province and provide employment for its people. Through the Casino-de-Charlevoix the Society is helping to put food on the tables of many Quebecers.
Furthermore, both the casino and the adjoining Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu are tourist attractions in their own right drawing hundreds of tourists to Pointe-au-Pic. In this way, the resort is contributing to the revenue pool of Québec as a whole.
