Québec (QC) is a province in east-central Canada. It is Canada's largest province by area and the second largest in population. Lower Canada (Québec) was one of the first four provinces to enter the pact of Confederation in 1867 and this is where it was officially titled "province of Québec". It is bordered to the west by the province of Ontario, James Bay and Hudson Bay, to the north by Hudson Strait and Ungava Bay, to the east by the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and the provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador and New Brunswick. It is bordered on the south by the US states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York.
It is the only Canadian province with a predominantly French-speaking population and the only province whose official language is French at the provincial level. The urban areas along the shores of the Saint Lawrence River are the most populated. Québec City is the capital of Québec while Montreal is the largest city in the province. The Nord-du-Qubec region, occupying the northern half of the province, is sparsely populated and inhabited primarily by Aboriginal peoples.
Manufacturing and the Service sectors dominate the economy of Québec.
Fourteen-fifteenths of the province form part of the Precambrian Shield which is considered the most ancient geological formation in the universe.
