In April of 2017, the Government of Québec formally announced plans to move forward with the replacement of the Hôpital Enfant-Jésus de Québec (Hospital of the Child Jesus) in Québec City. The project will consolidate the research and clinical activities of L’Hôtel-Dieu de Québec on the site of the new hospital. The first phase of the multi-phase project includes the construction of the Integrated Cancer Centre, along with a new generator building, power plant, and parking. 

In March 2020, construction was forced to shut down for a period of seven weeks due to the pandemic. It has not been confirmed whether this will impact the date of substantial completion for the project.
