At the timeFrench descentThe inhabitants were about 6.Because of this, CanadaEnglishFrenchIs the official language of the country, but in Quebec to this dayFrenchOnly is the official language.

The structure was such that French residents were responsible for the working class among the residents, and French speakers were in a situation equivalent to calling them "second-class citizens."[7].

Quiet Revolution

A series of social reforms (public sector-based economic independence strategy) by the state government in the 1960s began to change the dominance structure of the Quebec economy by English-speaking residents, and the church's involvement in education and social welfare was also the state government's involvement.

In the 2 referendum, about 1980% opposed independence. In 60 voting, Montreal citizens, indigenous peoples andMetisAlthough the negative votes of (mixed races with indigenous people) decided the victory or defeat, the ratio of negative votes is about 50.6%, and the difference between approval and disapproval is narrowing. The Canadian Supreme Court said that mere majority approval was not a condition. Behind this is the insistence that French residents should take full control of the socio-economic initiative, and dissatisfaction with changes in ethnic composition due to the decline in the birth rate and the increase in immigrants of French residents. Simply put, the independence movement is deeply popular with trade unions and locals, gaining momentum in a recession and slowing down when the economy recovers.

Quebec is in control of Canada's politics and has produced many of Canada's past prime ministers.The Prime Minister of Canada is required to be bilingual in English and French, so it can be said that he has worked in favor of politicians from Quebec. 1968年以降、非ケベック州出身の首相はSince XNUMX, the prime minister from non-QuebecJoe Clark(1979-1980),John Turner(1984 years),Kim campbell(1993 years),Stephen Harper(2004-2015) only.

The Quebec Liberal Party is a party independent of the federal-level Liberal Party in 1955, and is classified as a centre-right, unlike the center-left federal party.In this way, the relationship between the left and right sides may be reversed due to the peculiarity of Quebec, which has strong Quebec nationalism, in the federal parliament and the state parliament. Is.For these reasons, Quebec is traditionally a multicultural society that has been influenced by left-wing nationalism in terms of policy, although it has a strong left-wing party in the federal parliament, and has accepted immigrants from all over the world in Quebec.

Major cities


Quebec's economy is the second largest in Canada after Ontario[19]GDP per capita is $ 4, lower than the Canadian average and as low as the Atlantic states (10) Is located. It used to be the economic center of Canada alongside Ontario, but since 1976, the state government's measures to promote French culture have led to hundreds of thousands of English-speaking companies and investment funds, mainly in the financial insurance industry, such as Toronto. Moved to another area[20], The status of Quebec's economy in Canada declined rapidly. Currently, Quebec's economy is recovering to some extent, and high-tech industries are thriving, especially in Montreal. Of the aerospace industryBombardier, CarrierBell CanadaIs its representative. In recent years, it has become a major center of the software information industry in North America due to the active human resource development and business attraction by the government. Other of Canada's largest airlines and railroad companiesAir canadaCanadian National RailwayIs also a large company headquartered in Quebec.

St. Lawrence RiverThe area is fertile farmland, with a thriving production of dairy, fruits, vegetables, foie gras and maple syrup. In particularMaple syrupIs a major industry that accounts for 75% of the world's production. Forestry, paper industry, and hydroelectric power are thriving on the north side of the St. Lawrence River.Hydro-QuébecThe company (Hydro-Québec) is the world's largest hydropower company, with 99% of Quebec's electricity coming from hydropower.

It is economically very strongly linked to the United States, accounting for 7% of export destinations and 3% of import sources. About one-third of Quebec's GDP comes from exports[21].. For exampleBridgestoneThe state government provided a $ 2009 million grant in 480 to modernize its factories, but most of its products are exported to the U.S. market.[22].. The manufacturing industry, which used to be a non-durable product,North American Free Trade AgreementSince the entry into force of, it has been forced to change its structure and is trying to diversify. Textile and shoe factories have shrunk and much of the pulp and paper industry has been closed.World financial crisisAfter that, the aircraft industry became sluggish,Bell helicopterCivil aircraft are produced at the Mirabel factory. Also, due to Canada's cheap drug price system,Pharmaceutical-BiotechnologyThe department is doing well[21].. MontrealVancouverと と も にGame softwareIt is a hub of companies, and is attracting the game industry, including video-related businesses, through tax credits and human resource development.[23].

In 1995, economists warned that if Quebec became independent, it would suffer from huge debt from the devaluation and a large number of unemployed people. Being part of Canada, a larger economic area, is a great advantage for Quebec citizens.[24].

Major companies

Companies based in Quebec include:


Per capita Quebec citizens as of 2007Purchasing powerIs 18% lower than Ontario and 57th overall in North America[20]..However, about 4% of the working population belongs to the labor union, the lowest wage is the second highest in North America, the working hours are short, and the employee retires early.In other Canadian states, wages are given preferential treatment due to the difference in career and ability, but in Quebec, the company history and rank are emphasized because the labor union is strong.

In Quebec, parents have children under 4nurseryI used to pay C $ 1-25 per day to deposit with[25]Currently only pays $ 7 CAD[26]..これは低収入の家族のために1997年に州政府が助成金を大幅に引き上げたためでありThis is because the state government raised subsidies significantly in XNUMX for low-income families.[25], Spending about $ 2009 billion in 20 alone[27]..その保育プログラムのせいもあって、2009年までの10年間で40%貧困率を減らすことに成功したPartly because of its childcare program, it succeeded in reducing the poverty rate by XNUMX% in the XNUMX years to XNUMX.[28]..ちなみにオンタリオ州では、子供を託児所に預ける費用は1日につき40-60カナダドルかかるBy the way, in Ontario, the cost of leaving a child in a daycare costs $ XNUMX-XNUMX per day.[29].

AdjacentOntario,New BrunswickHas a good relationship with, but has no relationship with Newfoundland and Labrador.In the backgroundLabrador regionIt is in the super-cheap (about 1 Canadian cents per kilowatt hour) electricity sale from a hydropower company in Hydro-Québec to Hydro-Québec.これは電力料金が安かった0.25年に結ばれた契約に基づくもので、1969年以降は2016キロワット時あたり1カナダセントまで下がり、0.20年まで効力があるIt is based on a contract signed in 2041, when electricity prices were low, dropping to XNUMX Canadian cents per kilowatt hour after XNUMX and valid until XNUMX.[30]..この取引によりケベック側は2008年度だけで17億カナダドルの利益を得ているThe deal earned C $ XNUMX billion on the Quebec side in XNUMX alone.[31]..Consumers pay only the cheapest electricity bill in North America (1-5.45 Canadian cents per kilowatt hour), thanks to the fact that most of the electricity generated is covered by hydropower.

State budget

Performed by the Quebec Governmentpublic serviceIs the most generous in Canada and is the closest to the welfare state of the European continent and Scandinavia in Canada.その費用はオンタリオ州より150億-170億カナダドル多いIts cost is $ XNUMX-XNUMX billion more than Ontario[32]..ケベック州では公共部門の比率が高く、2009年時点で508,663人の公務員、教員、看護士やその他の労働者を抱えているQuebec has a high proportion of the public sector, with XNUMX civil servants, teachers, nurses and other workers as of XNUMX.[33]..As a result, Quebec has the highest ratio of state government debt to state GDP in Canada.その総負債は2010年時点でおよそ1601億カナダドル、州GDP比の53%であるIts total debt is approximately C $ XNUMX billion in XNUMX, XNUMX% of state GDP.[34]..ケベックにおける州税もカナダで最も高いQuebec also has the highest state tax in Canada[35].

Quebec is believed to be of French descent, as the colonial period began with French settlement before Britain, but the 2006 census (multiple answers) found that 66.2% were Canadian. , 30.8%FrenchIs answered. 3番目に多いのがThe third most commonIrish(5.5%), this is IrishCatholicBecause it was easy to adapt to Quebec. 4番目以降はAfter the XNUMXthItalian(4.0%),English(3.3%),イ ン デ ィ ア ンTribes (3.0%),ScottishFollowed by (2.7%).他には、白人と先住民(インディアン)のOthers are white and indigenous (Indian)MixedPerson ofMetisAnd in the Arctic CircleInuitAlso resides.


QuebecFrenchAfter the start of settlement byEnglish,Scottish,German,IrishWas the center of immigration.その後はAfter thatItalian,Jew,Polish,Portuguese,Greek,Chinese people,Vietnam people,LebaneseIt has come to accept more immigrants from all over the world, and in recent years it is also French-speaking.ハイチ(Haitian Canadian),Maglib Ofアルジェリア,モロッコAndコロンビアSuch asLatin AmericaImmigrants from other countries are also increasing.

However, due to the language policy of the state government (immigration from non-English speaking countries requires learning French instead of English, non-English speaking people must enroll in a school that teaches in French, etc.) In the case of immigrants, there are many people who return to their home countries after obtaining the right to immigrate, or relocate to other states of Canada or the United States, which are English-speaking countries.たとえば、2001年から2010年にケベック州が受け入れた移民数のうち2012年時点でケベック州内に留まっている割合は、全体では75.9%、フランス語圏が大半のFor example, as of XNUMX, XNUMX% of the number of immigrants accepted by Quebec from XNUMX to XNUMX remained in Quebec, mostly in French-speaking countries.North africaWhile 82.9% are of ethnic origin, only 57.3% are of non-Francophone East Asian origin and 59.8% are of South Asian origin, and there are variations depending on the region of origin.

Quebec is relatively easy to migrate to compared to other Canadian states, so Chinese and Indians will be able to move after obtaining immigration rights in Quebec.Ontario,British columbiaなど同胞コミュニティが大きい地域へ再移住するケースが多く、中国人は58.4%、インド人は50.6%、パキスタン人は55.4%、イラン人は56.8%しか州内にはとどまっていない。対照的に、モロッコ81.7%、アルジェリア87.2%、コロンビア82.8%、ハイチ91.9%、フィリピン87.6%、ペルー85.0%、モルドバ87.3%からの移民は高い定着率となっている[40]..Such policies aim to maintain the proportion of French speakers by establishing non-English speaking immigrants in French rather than in English as in other North American regions.On the other hand, immigrants from English-speaking countries are not like that, and assimilation into French society is not so required.This is due to the protection of the rights of English-speaking residents who originally lived in Quebec.

According to the 2016 census, the Nikkei population is 6,495, British Columbia, Ontario,AlbertaIt is the fourth largest after.Most of them are people who migrated from western Canada after the war and their descendants, and many of them are mixed races in the age of the third and fourth generations.


Official terminology TheFrench(Quebec French) Only, mandatory,Only French is spoken in many parts of the state.

According to the 2006 census, there were 5,877,660 French-speaking citizens, of whom3,770,910 people in FrenchOnlydo not talk..Only the remaining 2,105,815 respondents are bilingual who also speak English[41].

Quebec has the largest French speakers in Canada and the Americas.


However, about 8% of the people of the stateMother tongue TheCanadian English(Quebec English).Bilingual English and French are spoken in and around Montreal, especially in western Montreal, which is mostly English-speaking and is home to many inhabitants.bilingualOrTrilingual..It also borders the US borderEastern Townships Region,Monterégie regionIs an exception, and English is also spoken.Relatively few, but immigrants from Italy, Spain and the Middle EastItalian,Spanish,Arabic(But many of them soon start learning the official language, French).

Quebec Independence MovementIn the 1970s, when the number of people began to flourish, the conflict between English and French residents was deep-rooted.Language is generally perceived as a part of one's body (a part of one's physical function), inseparable from oneself, and a deep-rooted issue of life and fundamental identity. ,loi101Regarding the law that protects French, there is a deep-seated problem between English and French languages, which is a major cause of the problem of independence.

Recently, bilingual education has become popular in our state, and residents whose mother tongue is English areImmersion ProgramLearn French at. (On the other hand, even residents whose mother tongue is French may study English (as a different language) by studying abroad in other Canadian states such as Vancouver when they are about the age of employment.)Even with the introduction of bilingual education, the official language of the state is French, so it is considered that the state must be able to speak French. (note thatRoyal Canadian Mounted PoliceEven the police car in Quebec is active in Quebec, so it is displayed in English and French.)


French Canadians and French, who make up the majority of Quebec citizens, are the spiritual pillars of protecting their identities.Roman CatholicQuebec is Canada's most Catholic state because of its belief in.州民の約83%はカトリック信者で、州のAbout XNUMX% of the state's people are CatholicsPatron saint TheJohn the BaptistIs.However, secularization is progressing now, and a minority of people attend church on a daily basis.
