After the devastating fire of 1922, Raoul Chênevert worked on the restoration of the Basilica-Cathedral Notre-Dame de Québec.

This street is named in honour of Raoul Chênevert (1889-1951), one of Quebec’s most renowned architects from the 1920s until his death.

For 25 years, Chênevert was the designated architect of the Commission scolaire de Québec, for which he designed many school buildings in the 1920s and 1930s.
