The Territorial Division Directory provides information on provincial and federal administrative divisions, as well as part of Statistics Canada’s Census geography.
The Directory is centered around Québec municipal divisions (including local municipalities, Aboriginal territories and unorganized territories).
In addition, this tool allows you to carry out multi‑criteria searches and to discover the history or obtain a personalized list of municipalities.

For more information about the sources used for area and population data, please consult this table.
Territory areas are estimated based on the Système sur les découpages administratifs (SDA) of the Ministère de l'Énergie et des Ressources naturelles. Land areas are calculated by the Institut using the National Hydro Network (NHN) distributed by Natural Resources Canada (compilation of hydrographic data at 1:20 000 and 1:50 000 scales). Areas are calculated based on the Albers equal-area conic projection for Québec (NAD83).
In the event of any discrepancy between the data published on this site and that found on the website of its producer, the latter prevails.
