The Québec Region
This page provides information about what we are calling the Québec Region. There are no LIPs in Québec. However, immigration data are provided for the region, which is the same geography as the province. The census geographies used are defined at the bottom of this page, along with dashboard data and definition sources. These can also be found in the Dashboard Dictionary (dated 2020-02-03).
Geographies and their data boundaries are listed below, starting with Canada and what we are calling the Québec Region, which has the same boundaries as the Province of Québec.

The LIPdata.ca dashboard uses data provided by Statistics Canada for Canada, the provinces and territories, and the standard or custom geographies needed for the four IRCC regions and all of the LIPs within them. Similarly, local data and information are generally provided by LIPs. While LIPdata.ca has supplied all of this information in good faith, it makes no representation, warranty, or condition (statutory, express, or implied) as to its accuracy; takes no responsibility for any errors or omissions which may be contained herein; and accepts no liability for any loss arising from any use or reliance on this website.
New boundary (shape) files will be ordered each spring, as needed. Once they have been received, data will be ordered (likely late spring each year). New or updated data will be added to the dashboard once it has been received and processed (likely in the fall of each year).
