In Canada and in North America, the province of Quebec remains a mystery to many, mostly because of its French-speaking nature. With a population of more than 8 million people, of which more than 6 million speak French-only at home, Quebecers make up a fourth of the Canadian population and pack a similar punch on the economic front.
While the language is the prominent differentiating factor, Quebecers boast a different culture as well, watching locally-produced TV shows, not to mention a thriving music scene, oscar-winning movie-making, and award-winning restaurants and products of the terroir. Ice-cider anyone? This different mindset is also reflected in how French-speaking Quebecers use the web and social media to follow brands or companies online. And more importantly, they do it in French, to a captive and savvy traveling audience.
