Roman Catholic Bishops and Archbishops of Quebec

Redirected from Archbishop of Quebec

The Diocese of Quebec is the oldest Catholic see in North America. It was founded as the Apostolic Vicarate of New France in 1658 and was elevated to a Diocese in 1674 and an Archdiocese in 1819. It lost large pieces of its territory with the formation of the Dioceses of Halifax and Kingston in 1817, the Diocese of Winnipeg in 1844 and the Diocese of Montreal in 1852. The Archbishop of Quebec has the largely ceremonial title of Primate of Canada.
