Quebec is Canada’s second most populous province, after Ontario. Most inhabitants live in urban areas near the Saint Lawrence River between Montreal and Quebec City, the capital. English-speaking communities are concentrated in the west of the island of Montreal but are also significantly present in the Outaouais, Eastern Townships and Gaspé regions. The Nord-du-Québec region, occupying the northern half of the province, is sparsely populated and inhabited primarily by Aboriginal peoples.
The Laurentian Mountains – Les Laurentides
The Laurentians are ancient mountains covered by vast stretches of forest and dotted with thousands of lakes that have always attracted people who appreciate the splendour of the scenery and the variety of sports and outdoor activities for every season
The Laurentians is a world renowned four-season tourist destination located north of Montreal. Quebeckers use a popular slang when talking about the Laurentians; they’re “going up North”. The territory spans South to North from Rivière des Mille-Iles to the huge territory north of Mont-Laurier and East to West, from the borderline of the Lanaudiere region to the boundaries of the Outaouais region.
