Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? French Canadians have their own way of speaking French. That’s something that sets them apart from French people: they both speak the same language, but they speak it in completely differently ways. If you ask a Quebecer if he’s more British or French, it’s very likely you’ll get a different answer every time you ask. Quebec has been colonized by both, and has adopted some habits from each of their cultures.

Did You Know? What is a 'dit/dite' name?  When the first settlers came to Canada from France it was a custom to add a 'dit' nickname to the surname. The English translation of 'dit' is 'said'. The Colonists of Nouvelle France added 'dit' names as distinguishers. A settler might have wanted to differentiate their family from their siblings by taking a 'dit' name that described the locale to which they had relocated. The acquiring of a 'dit' name might also be the result of a casual adoption, whereby the person wanted to honor the family who had raised them. Another reason was also to distinguish themselves by taking as a 'dit' name the town or village in France from which they originated. This custom ended around 1900 when people began using only one name, either the 'dit' nickname or their original surname.
