Quebec is in northeastern Canada. It is the largest of the 10 Canadian provinces. The province has a strong economy based on its skilled workers, many natural resrouces and its ability to adjust to economic change. Water is one of Quebec’s most important natural resources. The St. Lawrence River, one of the longest rivers in the world, flows for about 1200 kilometres through Quebec. The province also has more than one million lakes and rivers. Most of the population lives in the southern parts of the province. ( and wikipedia)

NOTE: Quebec’s official language is French and most of the programs and services are offered only in French. However, information on these programs and services may be available in English. Quebec has well established systems, policies and procedures for assessing and recognizing individuals prior learning. In Quebec this process is called Recognition of Acquired Competencies or Reconnaissance des acquis et des compétences (RAC).
