Québec is a predominantly French-speaking province in eastern Canada with 2 vibrant cities in its south, connected by the Chemin du Roy highway along the Saint Lawrence River. The metropolis Montréal is named after Mt. Royal, the triple-peaked hill at its heart. Dating to 1608, Québec City retains its old colonial core, Place Royale, and historic harbour, Vieux Port, now known for nightlife. Quebec represents the second largest economy and the second largest fleet in Canada.

A total of 6.09 million light vehicles were registered in Quebec in 2017, the second largest home for vehicles in Canada. The province of Quebec accounts for 23% of all light vehicles currently registered in the country. Unique to Quebec, the province has more passenger cars on the road compared to light trucks and usually has a young fleet. The average vehicle age in Quebec is 9.0, younger than the Canada mean of 9.7. Looking at the next five years, the fleet in the province is expected to grow at an annual rate of 2% and therefore will reach over 6.7 million vehicles by the end of 2022.
