I have made a new quiz for all 223 villes of Quebec! Maybe after seeing it, some commenters will better understand why it is a standalone quiz and not part of this one :)

Nova Scotia has three "regional municipalities", including Halifax, Cape Breton and Queens County. However, these are recognised as former cities and therefore they are not included. Think of this as the Canadian version of the UK Cities quiz. On the other hand, Quebec uses the term 'ville' as an umbrella term for both cities and towns. I could not included either province as I had to stick to objectivity/legal definition here.

Keep in mind that cities are defined by the province (hence the lack of consistency), and some smaller cities used to be much more prominant.

I've also shaded in orange any region which has the full extent of the city itself. Some counties/other rural areas are goverened as cities and therefore coloured orange.

I'm glad you think so! I used a map from another one of my quizzes and spent the rest of the time creating the metro area maps.
+1
Level 65
Aug 7, 2020
There are loads of reference maps for the metro areas of big cities if that's what you are refering to. It took some time to create each one (except for the St. Catharines-Niagara area, for that one I reused this map. That's the problem with the term "city" on Jetpunk. A fishing village in Newfoundland is by no means a city, but if I made a grand 5000 answer quiz on Canadian cities, I wouldn't want to call it "Every City, Town, Village, Hamlet, Municipality and Ville in Canada with a Map!"
+1
Level 65
Aug 7, 2020
Gotcha. It's all in the visuals, the map of Canada does not fill the entire SVG, so there is room for the smaller individual maps. It's all one big map, however, and I've just drawn rectangular borders over the individual shapes on the smaller maps to make everything look neat. Hope that makes sense! Here is the map if you want to take a closer look.

In an officially bilingual country how are villes not cities?
+2
Level 65
Aug 8, 2020
Villes include what we in English might describe as a town or a city. I had no way to draw the line, so rather than include all 200+ villes in Quebec, I resorted to not including them at all. Montreal, Gatineau, etc. are not officially called cities either, as per the choice of Quebec.

Level 74

Canada sure is officially a bilingual country. But New Brunswick is actually the only bilingual province. Québec's sole official language is French, all others' is English.

Level 74
Aug 9, 2020
Hi there, I think omitting Quebec and Nova Scotia doesn't really work. I hear your rationale that cities in Quebec and Nova Scotia are classed differently, but I think some common sense should apply here to include equivalent entities from this two provinces. A Cities of Canada quiz without Montreal, for example, as an answer is just weird.
+1
Level 65
Aug 9, 2020
The problem is that there are no legally defined equivalent entities in either province. According to Wikipedia, in Quebec "The title city (French: cité code=C) still legally exists, with a few minor differences from that of ville. However it is moot since there are no longer any cities in existence." (source) Villes are essentially considered towns, so in order to justify adding all 200 or so Quebecois villes I may as well include towns from other provinces as well. As for Nova Scotia, they use regional municipalities rather than cities. Regional municipalities are built up areas, with only one being an actual city (Halifax). The other two are Cape Breton County and Queens County. Nova Scotia used to have cities, however they were all dissolved into larger regional municipalities. I have no choice but to exclude both provinces.
+2
Level 65

However, I am planning on making a 'Villes of Quebec Quiz' in future, in both English and French.

Some quizzes use a cut-off population point. Wouldn't that be a good, logical way to include Québec and Nova Scotia? Or does that quiz already exist?

My parents took me on a fishing trip to Ontario around 50 years ago and I've never forgotten how amazing your beautiful country is. I still remember climbing into the Beaver at the little town of Jellicoe to fly back to a lake where the water was so clean we drank right from the lake, and we picked tiny wild blueberries on an island for our lunch. I look forward to more Canadian quizzes from you even though I only scored two points on this one.

There are many beautiful things to see in Canada, and I'm glad you still have fond memories of your travels here.

Level 43
Sep 5, 2020
I think it would make more sense to have this quiz be all settlements with more than 10,000 people, as this is largely regarded as the threshold of being a city. That way you can include Quebec and Nova Scotia.

Sep 5, 2020
There is already an excellent quiz of that sort by OskarRB, but unfortunately it won't earn you points (yet). Personally I'm fine with this quiz the way it is, I'd thought about doing an enormous name-every-city-in-Canada kind of quiz, (this time including every settlement possible), but then I realised it wouldn't turn out very well due to a lack of space on the map.
