The contact of French and English languages that began in the 18th century in Canada led to the appearance of the Quebec version of French. Being formed in isolation from the French-speaking world the French language of Quebec underwent changes at all levels, especially at lexical one. The influence of English led to the appearance of borrowing and calquing in Quebec French. The article considers the question of appearance and functioning of phraseological calques in Quebec French. With the help of comparative analysis the author determines the differences in reference to the classical French language, and also presents various classifications of phraseological units distinguished in the given linguistic area and political discourse.
