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.

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

From its inception in the early 1600s until 1760, it was called Canada, New France
1760 to 1763, it was simply Canada
1763 to 1791 - Province of Quebec
1791 to 1867 - Lower Canada
1867 to present - Quebec, Canada
