QuÉbec at a Glance

(SOURCES: The main part of the information in these pages is from Québec government Websites.)


Québec is North American in geography, French in origin, and British in parliamentary tradition. While it is a French-speaking society, it is increasingly cosmopolitan, especially in the metro Montréal area. Québec is a pluralistic, modern, dynamic, and outward-looking society.

The seven short sections that follow give an overview of Québec's geography, history, political system, institutions, economy, Québec in the world, and culture.
