The egg will then hatch within two weeks, and the grub will eat the nourishment that the mother left. The amount of bee bread provided will directly affect the size of the offspring (more food = larger size). When the food has been eaten and the grub has fully developed, the grub will turn into a prepupa. Over the course of eleven months, the prepupa will undergo metamorphosis to become an adult bee. The adult bee will then dig to the surface in late April or early May, and will live for about a month. By late July, virtually no C. pallida can be found.
The process of integrating the province’s various Centris databases began approximately five years ago and was completed in June 2008. All transactions concluded through a real estate broker who is a member of a real estate board are added to the new provincial database. The Québec Federation of Real Estate Boards (QFREB) uses this database to publish press releases and other publications on market conditions, including the Centris Barometer – Residential Market, which provides an overview of key performance indicators associated with the resale market (i.e., sales, new listings, median prices, number of days on the market, etc.). These indicators are calculated according to consistent, stringent rules so that statistics can be comparable across geographic areas.
Le patrimoine architectural de Québec comprend l'ensemble des bâtiments de l'Assemblée nationale qui ont été érigés sur la colline Parlementaire à partir de 1877. On y retrouve deux styles architecturaux, soit le style Second Empire pour l'Hôtel du Parlement et l'architecture Beaux-Arts pour les autres édifices. La Citadelle de Québec, construite entre 1820 et 1831, le Château Frontenac, bâti entre 1892 et 1893, et la Terrasse Dufferin font également partie du site patrimonial du Vieux-Québec.
