Yep, had a couple people die in BC already this year. They could still happen in Quebec, I wouldn't take the risk. I know where the OP is coming from though. In Ontario there basically are no glades, anything that isn't a run is "out of bounds" which is very different from "outside the resort boundary" in avalanche country.
