Montreal and Ottawa have agreed to share the hosting of the 2024 Summer Games, the provincial government announced Monday.
The Montreal-Ouest-Trudeau region will be hosting the 2024 Games.
The announcement came after Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard announced in August that he was pulling the plug on a bid to host the 2024 games.
The announcement came just weeks after Quebec City, Que., announced it would host the 2020 Summer Games.
“We are pleased that the Government of Quebec has committed to hosting the next Games in Montreal and Quebec City,” Couillard said in a statement.
“Montreal and Quebec are proud and proud of the city, region and the people of Quebec.
The city has the best sports facilities, and we will work hard to make the Games a success.”
The Quebec City-Montreal region is home to more than 3 million people and has hosted more than 130 Olympic Games.
In addition to hosting more than 100 Olympics, the region hosts the 2022 Winter Games in Sochi.
The province’s plan for hosting the 2020 Games includes a host city that is already a major international sporting venue.
The 2022 Winter Olympics will be hosted in St. Petersburg, Russia.
