The Institut maritime du Québec (IMQ) is proud to celebrate 75 years of history

Formerly known as the Rimouski Marine School, IMQ was inaugurated on May 24, 1944. In 1958, the Rimouski Marine School became the Institut maritime du Québec.

Recognized for its leadership, IMQ is the largest francophone maritime training establishment in Canada. It provides training and development to the workforce in five areas of specialization: Naval Architecture, Navigation, Marine Mechanical Engineering, Professional Diving and Transportation Logistics. To fulfill its mission of supporting the marine industry, IMQ also offers a Continuing Education Service through its Emergency Training Center (CFMU) and its Professional Dive Training Center (CFPP). IMQ also works closely with Innovation Maritime (IMAR), its applied research center in marine technologies.

Boats at sea initiative

As part of its 75th anniversary, 75 students will launch a boat at sea during the year 2019 to highlight the deployment of its cadets around the world and the local, national and international presence of IMQ. The launch coordinates of each boat will be listed according to its starting point as well as the place where it will be discovered by citizens of the world. Thus, just like our students, these small boats will sail oceans, seas, lakes and rivers in search of adventure.
