Quebec and its regions

Quebec is the largest of Canada’s ten provinces. Located in the country’s east, it shares over 12,000 kilometres of land and water borders with Ontario, Nunavut, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and the United States.

Quebec’s industries

These resources have led to the establishment of important industries in Quebec: forestry, energy and mining. Quebec is Canada’s main pulp and paper producer, and its huge freshwater supply has made it the country’s largest hydroelectricity producer. Quebecers are leaders in high-tech industries, such as the pharmaceutical and aeronautical industries. Its cultural sector is also thriving. Indeed, the Quebec government has announced a $110 M investment over 7 years for the establishment of digital projects.

The many technical programs offered in cégeps give students the opportunity to study, among other things, in these job-promising fields. Over 1.3 million jobs will need to be filled throughout various Quebec regions by 2024.
