Quebec is Canada’s largest province in size and second in population behind its neighbour, Ontario. It is the only Canadian province to have a predominantly french speaking population as french is the sole provincial official language. Over 95% of the population is french speaking with more than 40% being able to speak english and french.
Most of the province’s population resides along or near the St. Lawrence River between Montreal and Quebec City with approximately half of the residents living in the Greater Montreal Area. The name Quebec comes from the Algonquin word “kebec” meaning “where the river narrows” and originally referred to the area around Quebec City on the St. Lawrence River. Quebec was one of the first provinces in Canada, joining July 1, 1867.
Quebec plays a big role in Canada’s food scene and has their impact seen in a variety of ways. Surprisingly enough, the dairy industry in Quebec is Canada’s largest. The province is also the country’s greatest maple syrup producer. Quebec is home to North America’s oldest brewery, Montreal’s Molson Coors, and was founded in 1786 and is still at its original site. In 2012, a man was sentenced to 8 years in jail and fined $9.4 million dollars for the theft of 3,000 tonnes of maple syrup from the Quebec Reserve. The Province is responsible for 75% of the world’s maple syrup production.
