Quebecers or Quebeckers[1][2][3] (French: Québécois) are terms that are sometimes used to refer to people living in the province of Quebec in Canada,[4] though such is not the only definition of Québécois. This identification can be used by some Francophone people of Quebec to refer to themselves.[5] A majority in the Canadian House of Commons in 2006 approved a motion tabled by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, which stated that the Québécois are a nation within a united Canada.[6] Harper later elaborated that the motion's definition of Québécois relies on personal decisions to self-identify as Québécois, and therefore is a personal choice.[7] Self-identification as Québécois became dominant in the 1960s; prior to this, the Francophone people of Quebec identified themselves as French Canadians.[8]
