Few people realize this, but Quebec is the largest state or province in North America--bigger than Alaska. Only the Canadian territory of Nunavut is larger among all first-order country divisions on the continent.
This list is now in reasonably good shape, but it is still possible that some peaks have been left off. Also, prominence information is incomplete for a handful of remote peaks in the far north. But it does highlight the variety of the peaks in Quebec, including the rugged and remote Torngats in the north, the vast Laurentian area in the heart of the province, and the Appalachians south of the Saint Lawrence.
Note that even though Mont D'Iberville has almost no prominence, it is still ranked on this list, since it is the high point of the province.
Thanks must be offered to Gabriel Couët and Ben Lostracco, who contributed lots of data about Quebec mountains to this site.
Primary sources for this list were the CanVec web mapping service data, the NTS 1:50,000 maps from MyTopo.com, and old SoftMap CD-ROM set for the southeastern areas of the province, and the generous help of the individuals noted above.
