What is the lodging tax?
In Quebec's tourist regions where the request have been made to the government, a lodging tax is charged in addition to the GST and QST, when you stay less than 32 consecutive days in an accommodation establishment. The tax goes directly to the tourist office of this region. It is used to finance the tourism partnership fund established to support and strengthen the Québec tourism industry.

The snow removal is provided by the municipality, while the cottages driveways are plowed by a private contractor.
