The Quebec Uprising (also called Quebec Revolution by Canadiens), was was the political upheaval near the end of the 18th century in which Quebecers from the British Province of Quebec protested the British government's new taxation law, seeking independence.

The uprising lasted less than a year, and resulted in the continuation of British presence and taxation in Quebec. The uprising also resulted in the federation of the British colonies in continental North America, forming British America.
