In terms of permanent settlement, Sherbrooke and Gatineau (formerly Hull) are the two youngest major cities in Quebec, having become settlements/founded around 1800. Both were founded by Loyalists from the United States.

The other major cities in Quebec were generally settlements in the 1600s. This includes Montreal, Quebec City, Trois-Rivières and even Chicoutimi which had a mission settlement in the 1600 in spite of its relative isolation in central Quebec.

Quebec also has quite a few small towns and villages founded or settled in the 1600s.

Still a really nice group of people to spend Christmas dinner with, though.
