The Archdiocese of Québec ( _la. Archidioecesis Quebecensis, _fr. Archidiocèse de Québec) is the oldest Catholic see in the New World north of Mexico. 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 Charlottetown in 1829, the Diocese of Winnipeg in 1844 and the Diocese of Montreal (see Bishops of Montreal) in 1852. The Archbishop of Quebec has the ceremonial title of Primate of Canada since 24 January 1956 that was given to the Archbishop by Pope Pius XII.

The cathedral of this diocese is Notre-Dame de Québec Cathedral in Quebec City.
