Today, Québec is a place to connect and create that is highly valued by talented people around the globe. That’s because ideas are expressed freely and can collide, flourish and become realities in Québec; because Québec is both peace-loving and assertive, forward thinking and proud of its roots, northern yet warm and inviting, rich in contrasts. Québec is autonomous in areas within its constitutional jurisdiction and bases its international action on the extension of its powers within the Canadian federation.
