Quebec French (French: le français québécois, le français du Québec), or Québécois French, is the predominant variety of the French language in Canada, in its formal and informal registers. Quebec French is used in everyday communication, as well as in education, the media, and government.

Canadian French is a frequently used umbrella term for the varieties of French used in Canada including Quebec French. Formerly it was used to refer solely to Quebec French and the closely related varieties of Ontario and Western Canada, but is no longer usually felt to exclude Acadian French, which incidentally is also spoken in some areas of eastern Quebec.[2]

The pejorative term joual is occasionally used to refer to a variety of Quebec French associated with the working class of the Montreal area, characterized by certain features perceived as incorrect.[3]
