Sillery is a former city in central Quebec, Canada. Located just west of old Quebec City, Sillery was among the many outlying municipalities amalgamated into an expanded Quebec City on January 1, 2002. Its former territory now forms part of the new Borough of Sainte-Foy—Sillery (Population (2001): 11,909). The name Sillery is still used to refer to the affluent neighbourhood. Of the former municipalities that comprise Quebec City, Sillery is the most allophone (5%) the second-most anglophone (4%), and the second-least francophone (91%), making it relatively linguistically diverse within a city that is 97% French-speaking.
