Aptly named as “la belle province” by the locals, the beautiful province of Quebec is a wonder that has been nurtured and nourished by nature since ages. With approximately 8 million residents, Quebec stands as the largest province in Canada. It is one of the major fishing destinations of Canada. Fishermen bring their fishing kayaks to try their luck on the waters here. Some even haul their trolling boats from all across the country to fish in these regions.
The rich culture and vibrant atmosphere of the province have earned it the title “Europe of North America”. Other than its lush green forests and magnificent hills, the country has more than one million waterways and lakes, making it the largest freshwater reserve in the country.
Contrary to its neighbours, the official language of Quebec is French. Montreal, located on the eastern side of the province, is home to more than 4 million French-speaking residents, making it the second largest city in the world where French is the major language.
Other cities of major importance include the capital Quebec City, Hull-Gatineau, Trois-Rivieres, Sherbrook, and Saguenay. The major water body running through the country is the St. Lawrence River which connects all the major cities to the Atlantic Ocean.
