Web Links

Quebec's Emerging Energy Resources

This site is provided by the Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources. Students will be able to understand many of the brief articles on this site; however, they may have difficulty with the concept of "biomass energy." Direct the students to the three articles below the biomass section-on hydrogen power, wind power, and solar energy. This site is a good starting point for discussing the concepts of renewable and non-renewable resources.

Quebec's Growing Economy
This site is an official site of the Quebec government. While some of the economic information may be beyond your students, the site does contain a lot of useful information. The Investing in Montreal link is one section of the site that is fairly accessible and may give students some sense of what constitutes a region's economic advantage, i.e., its labour force (people), existing industries, location, cultural life, and so on. The activity for this site is also designed to introduce students to these ideas.
