Quebec - Geography

Geography

Located in the eastern part of Canada and (from a historical and political perspective) part of Central Canada, Quebec occupies a territory nearly three times the size of France or Texas, most of which is very sparsely populated.

The Saint Lawrence Lowland (south) and the Canadian Shield (north) are the two main topographic regions and are radically different.
