On May 7th, 2012, the Association québécoise des spas was created to mobilize and represent the spa industry in Québec and its 21 touristic regions.
As it is experiencing major growth, the industry has demonstrated an interest in mobilizing and constituting a bigger association to represent the spa sector in Quebec with a more accessible annual membership.
We need to point out that the Alliance Spas Relais santé remains the only association offering “quality certification” for spas in Quebec and using said trademark. All of its members belong to AQS.
AQS is recognized by the ministère du Tourisme du Québec as being a sectorial touristic association (ATS), representing the spa industry in Quebec.
AQS has two (2) categories of members:
- Spa Members
- Partner Members (suppliers)
