When people think of the Sasquatch, thoughts of the Pacific Northwest states and British Columbia may come to mind. However, Sasquatch sightings have been reported elsewhere, notably Manitoba and some midwestern states. What about Quebec, you ask?

Currently, we are unaware of any reported sightings of the Sasquatch within the province of Quebec. However, there have been reports of sightings from New England, some dating back to colonial times.

There have been Sasquatch sightings on the border of New York State and Vermont since the 1600s. Sightings in Maine, while not reaching as far back, have been reported since at least the 1970s. How does this all relate to Quebec?

We share large borders with these states. In particular, the borders with Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine are forested and mountainous. The wilderness in the states where sightings have been recorded continues across the border into Quebec. It must also be noted that New Brunswick also factors into this, as it shares an equally rural border with Maine in the south southwest and with Quebec in the north northwest.

So in conclusion, while we have not received any reports of Sasquatch in Quebec at this time, it is important to note that Quebec shares the wilderness where Sasquatch sightings have been reported.
