Did You Know?Acadia - Did you know? Acadians believed that the first snowfall of May had medicinal qualities. It was believed to cure sore eyes, ear aches and other maladies. Acadians melted the snow and saved it in bottles to use throughout the year.

Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? The habitant was inordinately fond of sour milk. Tea was scarce and costly. Brandy was imported in huge quantities. Every parish in the colony had its grog-shop; in 1725 the King ordered that no parish should have more than two. Quebec had a dozen or more, and complaint was made that the people flocked to these resorts early in the morning, thus rendering themselves unfit for work during most of the day, and soon ruining their health into the bargain.

Over time, Quebec has gone through a series of name changes.

1760 to 1763, it was simply Canada
1763 to 1791 - Province of Quebec
1791 to 1867 - Lower Canada
1867 to present - Quebec, Canada
