Tourist Information

Quebec City is the national capital of the province of Quebec, one of the provinces of Canada. As of July 2016, Quebec City had a population of 531,902 inhabitants. The St. Lawrence River narrows between the cities of Québec and Lévis, located on the opposite shore. The name given to the city originates from the Algonquin keyword “Kébec”, which means "where the river narrows". Founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain, Québec is one of the oldest cities in North America. Québec is the only fortified city remaining north of Mexico. Vieux-Québec was declared a World Heritage site in 1985 by UNESCO.  Try to practice your French while you are here, even though people working in tourist areas are usually bilingual.
