This is a city with a very long history, but I will be summarising it. Before European settlement, the land called Quebec today was occupied by several Indian tribes for centuries, and their cultural and archaeological traces can still be witnessed by visitors today. In 1608, French explorer Samuel de Champlain founded the French colony of Quebec and with time grew into the centre of the "New France" colony. When Champlain settled here he named it Kébec. Kébec is an Amerindian word meaning place where the river becomes narrow. The City was under French rule from that time to 1759, except for a few period between 1627 to 1632, when city was controlled by the Kirke brothers. Early European inhabitants were religious missionaries and traders (majorly fur traders). During the 17th/18th centuries, Québec City was the headquarter of New France and its growing territory. At that time, the French empire covered a large section of area, including areas like the Great Lakes, Louisiana, Eastern Canada and even Eastern United States. Recent counts in 2015 of the population, calculated to about 806,400, in the metropolitan area making it Canada's seventh-largest metropolitan area.

The language of instruction is French in majority of schools in Québec especially at the pre-school level, elementary level and secondary level. However, there is English options for some students who meet the set down requirements for the language option of the Charter.
