Quebec City and the surrounding region are known for being safe places to live. Quebec City has one of the lowest crime rates in North America and was also named the safest metropolitan area in Canada to raise children.
With its blend of history, modernity, culture and nature, Quebec City is a reflection of the people who live here. Safe, dynamic, innovative, hospitable and lively, it has a robust economy and offers outstanding quality of life, with a non-stop parade of festivals and major events throughout the year. More than just a vibrant urban centre, Quebec City is a place where all family members can find fulfilling roles to play. Leaving your homeland for a new country is a difficult and life-changing decision—so choosing a healthy and safe place to live where everyone has a chance to grow is a priority.
Ranked as the second largest municipality in the province, Quebec City is divided into six boroughs (known as arrondissements). Each one has a unique style and offers a distinctive environment with specific socio-demographic characteristics. Although they differ, the boroughs offer a diversified range of services designed to meet local residents’ diverging needs.
