Quebec City was conceived and built as a fortress, the only city in the north of Mexico. The rivalry between the English and French in North America led to a war that lasted for seven years and led to the British occupation forces in Quebec by the year 1759 and that designation of territory as British colony. The British made a treaty of capitulation and compromise promising to protect the French language and culture. In 1791, the colony was divided at the top of Canada (now Ontario) and Canada's bottom (now the province of Quebec). In 1867, it declared the province of Quebec and it is a founding member of the Dominion of Canada.
Quebec is divided into 17 administrative regions. This division of territory serves as a framework of economic activities, social and cultural needs of various ministries and government bodies. Administrative regions each other, especially in terms of geography and natural resources occupied and worked the plan economically and industrially.
Each region has an economy based on its characteristic elements, whether traditional, marine exploration, forestry and agriculture, such as new or recent technologies. This wide variety of economic activities contribute to the cultural progress of Quebec. In province, all regions give birth to famous artists, especially in the field performances, visual and literary arts. Born in Quebec or made, these artists contribute to the cultural enrichment of the regions where they live.
