French-speaking Quebecer

French-speaking Quebecers (or Quebecers/Quebeckers; in French Québécois) are francophone residents of the Canadian province of Quebec.

The majority of francophone Quebecers are of French-Canadian descent, but many immigrants integrate themselves into the francophone majority in Quebec. Many French Canadians have French and Irish origins; Irish surnames are common[1] and some have English surnames, Scottish surnames, German surnames, and so on.

According to the 2006 Census, 72% of residents of the Montreal Census Metropolitan Area speak French natively; outside the Montreal CMA, this figure is 95%. Major francophone universities include Université Laval, Université de Montréal, Université de Sherbrooke and the campuses of the Université du Québec.
