Quebec is the largest Canadian province with a population of more than 8 million people. It is called "the beautiful province" and "the Europe of North America" for its cultural diversity and beautiful nature. Quebec is the only Canadian province with French as the only official language. Quebec City, the capital of Quebec, has a population of 530,000, and Montreal, the largest city, has almost 2 million people.
