Québec's Place Within Canadian Institutions

The federative compromise of 1867 ensured that the federation’s institutional architecture gave due consideration to the concerns of Québec (previously known as Lower Canada, and then Canada East). A similar compromise was made when the Supreme Court of Canada was created in 1875.

Federal institutions have evolved since then. The Government of Québec is therefore ensuring that this evolution is in keeping with the interests of Quebecers, who have specific concerns regarding the need to preserve the inherent characteristics of their collective status as a minority nation within the Canadian federation.
