Former Lieutenant Governors of Quebec


Lieutenant Governors are appointed by the Governor General on the recommendation of the Prime Minister of Canada and the Federal Cabinet. The appointment is for a period of not less than five years and the salary is paid by the federal government.

The complex list of leaders listed below is due to the consitutional changes to the region we now know as the Province of Quebec. From 1791 - 1841, Lower Canada had Lieutenant Governors, from 1841 - 1867, Canada East had Governors General, and from 1867 until the present, the Province of Quebec has had Lieutenant Governors once again.
