However, over the years the importance of trading with the natives for fur in the land and securing it increased its population, but it was still slow. France also gave the Company of New France a fur trade monopoly with a condition to populate the area.
When the Seven Year 's War came, France and Britian were engaging each other worldwide. With the defeat of the French and the Treaty of Paris, much of North American under French rule was given to the British. In addition, the British agreed to protect Roman Catholicism in those lands. Later , Quebec was enacted the Quebec Act, which give them their Charter of Rights and later recognition of the French language and culture. This was due to the fear of the populace might support the growing rebellion happening in the Thirteen Colonies.
An important period to develop modern Quebec was the Quiet Revolution. The revolution made dramatic social and political changes that declined the Anglo 's influence in Quebec 's economy, declined the Roman Catholic Church 's influence, and gave rise a pro-sovereignty movement. An example is how the Roman Catholic Church had control over the fields of heath care and education, but efforts made by the provincial government gave them more direct control. It established the ministries of Heath and Education.
