Send a Parcel to Quebec, Canada
Located in East Central Canada it has a population that is mainly French speaking, and you will always be addressed in French first, and it is not uncommon to find people who do not speak English. Indeed it is the only Canadian city to officially have French as its official language. After Ontario it is the second most populated region, with many of its people living in urban areas.
It’s Canada’s largest province by land mass. It borders Maine, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont, yet also stretches up to Nova Scotia. The Saint Lawrence river links it with Montreal and it is home to large ice flows in Winter.
The city has traditionally relied on the areas natural resources for trade, however now Aerospace, IT, Bio Tech and Pharmaceutical Industries are now major players in the region, and have helped the city to have great economic influence in Canada. Of note is that the region is seen by many as a nation within a nation in Canada and there have been numerous attempts over the years to form a separate republic within Canada. This may yet happen at some point in the future.
It is also a major water provider and the region holds 3% of the Worlds freshwater resources. It is renowned for its harsh cold Winters, as you can tell with large car parks being underground. Indeed in the 2007-2008 Winter Quebec was hit with over 5 metres of snow!
It still has strong links back to France and an International airport, so parcel logistics are well catered for, particularly for services to and from Europe. The local road transport network is good, except it is wisest to check the weather in Winter before sending any urgent goods in case of extreme snowstorms, which can in turn effect inbound and outbound freight flights.
