Quebec Vacation
A Quebec Vacation is a picture of old work Europe and features it's own special brand of culture and history. Quebec differs greatly from the rest of Canada because of its French language and culture. The French explorer Samuel de Champlain founded Quebec City, the first permanent European settlement in Canada in 1608. Quebec remained a French colony until Britain (now also called the United Kingdom) gained control of it in 1763. Today, most of Quebec's people are of French descent. French is Quebec's official language.

In the past, the Roman Catholic Church dominated Quebec's politics and daily life. Today, the church generally has a less important role in the lives of the people of
Quebec. For example, the feast day of Saint Jean Batiste (Saint John the Baptist) in June is now celebrated largely as a secular (non religious holiday). It serves as an occasion for the French speaking people of Quebec to display their pride in their province.

Quebec is the largest province in area and the second largest in population. Only Ontario has more people. Montreal, Quebec's largest city, is the hub of the province's economic and cultural life. The largest industries in the Quebec region are service industries and manufacturing. Other important economic activities include agriculture, mining, forestry, and fishing.

Visit Quebec City,
Old Quebec, Notre-Dame Basilica and Old Montreal on your next Quebec Vacation.
