What is the only Canadian province with majority French speakers?
Quebec is the only Canadian province where the majority of the population speaks French as a first language. As of Canada’s 2011 census, there were approximately 7.05 million people who have French as their mother tongue — about 21% of the population — and 6.1 million of them reside in Quebec, where 78% speak French as a first language. In Canada’s other provinces and territories, French is very much in the minority — in most cases making up less than 4% of the population. Why is French so prevalent in Quebec? The 1960s saw various laws enacted for linguistic preservation, including the 1977 Charte de la langue française, making French the only official language in the province.
