Do Catholic schools still exist in Quebec? If so, do they rely totally on private funding?

Maybe in the private sector they may still have some religious based schools but as a whole in the public sector ya got your French schools and you got a few varieties of English schools, Varieties would include Full English school,bilingual schools or French immersion schools ,for some odd reason the French only have the French school option if going to public schools.
Heres just about everything you need to understand Quebec schooling

Catholic schools these days would have to be private.

Elementary Catholic schools would be extremely rare. I don't know of any though they might exist somewhere. Even non-confessional private elementary schools are not that common, though there are some.

Where there are more private and also Catholic schools is in the secondary (high school) level.

There, the vast majority of private high schools in Quebec are direct institutional descendents of collèges classiques that were originally set up by religious orders. Today probably a good majority of these colleges are secular even though they still retain their old names like Collège du Très-Saint-Coeur-de-Jésus or something like that. Some of them still retain a nominal Catholic aspect to their teachings, but not very much. I don't even think you have to be Catholic to attend them any more either.
