English Sillery, Quebec City
Sillery, a former independent city founded in 1637, is one of 35 administrative sectors (French: quartiers), which are unincorporated places, located in the post-expansion jurisdiction of the City of Quebec, Quebec, Canada. Sillery was one of multiple self-governing municipalities amalgamated into a vastly expanded Quebec City, that went into legal effect on January 1, 2002, as part of the province-wide 2000–06 municipal reorganization in Quebec. Located alongside in what pre-merger was the southwestern border of Quebec City, Sillery is a constituent district (French: quartier) of the borough (French: arrondissement) of Sainte-Foy–Sillery–Cap-Rouge. The territorially expanded City of Quebec consists of six boroughs.
Four heritage sites are located within Quebec City, one of which is situated in Sillery.

In 2013, Quebec City changed the name of the historic district to Sillery Heritage Site (French: site patrimonial de Sillery), as part of its preparation for the provincial government's transfer of responsibility for the district's management to it.The City of Quebec has 27 neighborhood councils (French: conseils de quartiers) spread across its territorial jurisdiction.
