Vehicle Reservation

Available Vehicles

The CEN has two vehicles based at Université Laval (Toyota Tacoma and Sienna). These vehicles are at the disposal of regular members and collaborators and are to be used only for travel related to research activities. These vehicles may not be used for participation in scientific conferences outside Quebec.

IMPORTANT - Please note that the CEN gives priority for the use of these vehicles to its immediate team (internal operations of the CEN) during the high season, from May to October. For longer stays in the North (Radisson and others), CEN asks its members to rent other vehicles.

The maximum reservation period is 7 days.
