List of census agglomerations in Quebec

A census agglomeration is a census geographic unit in Canada determined by Statistics Canada. A census agglomeration comprises one or more adjacent census subdivisions that has a core population of 10,000 or greater. It is eligible for classification as a census metropolitan area once it reaches a population of 100,000.[1]

As of the 2011 Census, the Province of Quebec had 25 census agglomerations,[2] down from 32 in the 2006 Census.[3] The one deleted in 2011 was La Tuque.[4]
