Where Old World meets New

As Canada’s largest province, Quebec keeps its calendar full of lively festivals and events with a joie de vivre the vintage locale is known for. A stunning collection of Old World and New, Quebec is a city of creative spirit, from its theatrical productions, visual art, literature and beyond. Though its primary language is French, English is spoken and understood almost everywhere in the province. While on your travels, don’t forget to stop for Canada’s culinary treasure (created in Quebec): the cheesy, gravy-y, potato-y goodness of poutine.
