The province of Quebec, Canada, is officially divided into 17 administrative regions. Traditionally (and unofficially), it is divided into around twenty regions. The Institut de la Statistique du Québec estimates the July 2006 population of Quebec at 7,651,531. For a land area of 1,312,126.4 km2, this gives an estimated population density of 5.9 inhabitants per square kilometre.

Administrative

Administrative regions are used to organize the delivery of provincial government services. They are also the basis of organization for regional conferences of elected officers (French: conférences régionales des élus (CRE)), with the exception of the Montérégie and Nord-du-Québec regions, which each have three CREs or equivalent bodies. (In the Nord-du-Québec region, the Kativik Regional Government and Cree Regional Authority, in addition to their other functions, play the role of a CRE).

List

The subregions of Montérégie and Nord-du-Québec having their own CRE are shown in italics.
