Quebecers are outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy reconnecting with their roots. Québec’s plentiful green spaces in the heart or within proximity of large urban areas make it a perfect place to commune with nature. What could be better than a relaxing getaway or a sports outing to re-energize and escape from the daily grind?
Quebecers appreciate good food and their conviviality finds no better form of expression than during a pleasant meal with the family or among friends at a restaurant.
Contemporary Québec cuisine is solidly grounded in French gastronomy and influenced by the knowledge of the Indigenous peoples, Anglo-Saxon culinary customs and the cooking practices of many cultural communities: smoked fish, game, fine cheeses, ice ciders and foie gras poutine are popular menu items.
Quebecers are known for their festive spirit. Major cultural and sporting events, urban festivals and charming village celebrations – there’s always a good reason to party and share happy times!
Several generations of Québec women participated in feminist movements and fought for a more just, egalitarian and united society. Marie Lacoste-Gérin-Lajoie, Idola Saint-Jean, Thérèse Casgrain, Simonne Monet-Chartrand and Mary Two-Axe Early are just a few of these women.
Thanks to the commitment of these trailblazers, present-day Quebecers enjoy equal rights.
