Quebec is the second largest province in Canada, in terms of population, and is home to the highest number of French-language speakers. The two main cities are Montreal, Canada’s second largest, and Quebec City, the historic capital of Quebec. 

Because of its French heritage, Quebec features the best of Canada, but with a European feel. Montreal is a huge hub of art and fashion, and the countryside is home to culinary delights such as Poutine (cheese, fries and gravy) and tourtière (meat pie). 

If art and culture is what you’re after, Quebec may be the place for you!
