Quebec efficiency refers to the most inefficiently run processes possible. These processes always take at least three times as if normally run and generally six to ten times longer than if run efficiently. The term originates from the Canadian province of Quebec, where such processes occur very frequently.

Jacques: "Quebec efficiency!"
