Study in Quebec City
Quebec is the second-most populous province in Canada. It is the only Canadian province that has a predominantly French-speaking population, and the only one to have French as its sole provincial official language. Once an outpost of Catholic conservatism, an isolated island of francophonie languishing in a sea of anglo culture, Quebec has finally come into its own and has crafted a rich, spirited culture independent of its European motherland.
The people of Quebec are vibrant and inviting and the province is strewn with colourful Victorian facades, lush rolling hills and romantic bistros. Québec City is a bustling metropolis with a perfect mixture of sophistication and playfulness, and history-soaked preserved quarters tucked away around town.
