Quebec is a Canadian province, with a population of 6 million, primarily speakers of the French language. It is surrounded by over 300 million English speakers in the US and the rest of Canada, and yet, it manages to keep its unique culture and language.

In 1995, 49.9% of Quebecers voted "yes" in a referendum that asked them if they wanted to split away from Canada, while 50.1% voted no. So Quebec is still part of Canada.

Quebec's provincial capital is Quebec City, and its largest city is Montreal.
