Quebec is Canada's largest province by area, and the second large by population. Almost a quarter of all Canada's population lives in Quebec. It is the only Canadian province which designates French as its official language, its residents being mainly French-speaking.
There has been a shift of economic sources in the last ten years. The most productive sectors are now the "knowledge economy", including aerospace, information technologies, finance, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical industry. Quebec is currently the second most economically influential in all of Canada.
Most of the population of Quebec settles in the provincial capital Quebec City, and the largest city Montreal, both situate along the Saint Lawrence River.
Montreal is currently positioning itself as the second largest French-speaking city globally. The high-tech industry has emerged as very significant, after the city successfully attracted industries of aerospace, jet engine, flight simulator companies to set up headquarters here. Key video game companies have also secure studios in Montreal.
Montreal has spent much effort in revitalizing its plan for housing development. The public and private sectors opt to develop urban centres that are integrated with business and services that are crucial to any lifestyles.
Quebec City's Old Town has, for some four hundred years, served as the capital of French Canada. Today it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is one of the oldest cities in North America, and the only fortified city whose walls still stand. Quebec City is divided into an upper town where businesses concentrate, and a lower town at the seashore level mainly caters for tourism and recreation.
