Quebec Real Estate

The second largest province or territory in the country, Quebec holds the distinction of being the only area of Canada with French as its official language. The province borders many other provinces and several United States. The west side of Quebec borders Ontario, the east side borders both New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador, and the south side connects to New York, Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire.


A Little About Quebec

As of 2015, there were approximately 8.2 million people living across Quebec in cities like Montreal, one of the largest in Canada, Quebec City, Gatineau, Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières. While the majority of speakers are Francophone, speaking French as their primary language, bilingualism is extremely common in the workforce, as speaking both French and English is seen as a desirable trait among employees. The result is a province where many of the residents are bilingual, at least to some extent. Less than 10% of the population is made up of minorities, and the majority of them call the city of Montreal their home.

Entertainment & Attractions

The province of Quebec has the unique distinction as being the French capital of North America, where the arts and culture around the language and history remain alive and well. From the French Quebec City to the more bilingual Montreal, the cities across the province have varying degrees of French to English, so any level of French speaker can find a place where they will feel comfortable communicating. The government has gone to great lengths to keep the language alive across the province, including many initiatives to fund its cultural heritage. The French culture is very much alive and well in Quebec, from the historic streets of Montreal to the bustling Quebec City, to the smaller towns and communities in the interior. Any Canadian interested in French culture or immersing themselves in the language should consider looking into some of the great available Quebec real estate.
