French-speaking Quebeckers (also Franco-Quebeckers, or Francophone Quebeckers; in French Québécois francophones or Franco) are French-speaking (francophone) residents of the primarily French-speaking Canadian province of Quebec. Quebec is the only province where French is the unique official language, since English is not an official language in that province. The majority are of French Canadian descent, but many immigrants also assimilate into the francophone majority in Quebec. Many French Canadians have Irish origin and Irish family names are common[2]. Quebec constitutes the only majority French-language community in a Canadian province.
