Colleges and Universities in Quebec

The largest province in Canada and the only one with a French-speaking majority, Quebec has a unique culture. Natural energy fuels the province--96 percent of all electricity consumed is produced by hydroelectric facilities--and also the economy. It is one of the fields you can study to prepare for a career in Quebec. Montreal, the largest city in the province, has a number of fine institutions such as McGill University, the University of Concordia and Vanier College, where you can study subjects such as energy and the environment, software engineering, theological studies, nursing or respiratory technology. Quebec City, Granby and other municipalities also offer options for education.
