Outline of Quebec

Location of Quebec

The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to Quebec:

Quebec – province in the eastern part of Canada situated between Hudson Bay and the Gulf of St. Lawrence. It is the only Canadian province with a predominantly French-speaking population and the only one whose sole official language is French at the provincial level. Sovereignty plays a large role in the politics of Quebec, and the official opposition social democratic Parti Québécois advocates national sovereignty for the province and secession from Canada. Sovereigntist governments have held referendums on independence in 1980 and 1995; both were voted down by voters, the latter defeated by a very narrow margin. In 2006, the Canadian House of Commons passed a symbolic motion recognizing the "Québécois as a nation within a united Canada."[1][2]

In this system, the official name of the capital is Québec in both official languages. The Quebec government renders both names as Québec in both languages.

Also, technically speaking, the commonly accepted English spelling is "Quebecker". The rules of English pronunciation require a "k" after the "c" for a hard sound. In the Oxford Dictionary, "Quebecker" is the only spelling offered (see Oxford Dictionary Online). The Globe & Mail uses "Quebecker" (see: Quebeckers' mental Bloc - article by Jeffrey Simpson after the 2008 election; Oct. 18, 2008). It is sometimes spelled "Quebecer" in other newspapers and magazines, such as the Montreal Gazette and Macleans magazine.
