This is actually quite common in Quebec many small businesses have their websites in French . The people of Quebec are very proud of their language.

It's headquartered in Quebec as per their contact information, so it's not surprising.

They could probably geotarget to serve up the English version for anyone outside Quebec though....would save a click for most people
