The Québec Kebs lasted only one season in the National Basketball League of Canada before relocating to nearby Laval for 2013 but they played several seasons in several leagues before that final 2011/12 NBL Canada campaign.

The Kebs began life in 2006 with controversy and public uproar all over the place. Owner Real Bourassa ruffled some feathers when he announced the team would be called the "Jumping Frogs", clearly a reference to the derogatory name used by the English toward French-speakers. In response to this Bourassa told residents they should relax and learn to laugh at themselves. While the logo ended up keeping the Jumping Frogs theme, ulitmately the name never took and they instead were known as the Québec Kebekwa - Kebekwa is a phonetic spelling of the French pronounciation of "Québecois", a resident of Québec.

The Kebekwa played this inaugural 2006/07 season and the following season in the American Basketball Association, shortening their nickname to "Kebs" in between the two years. The club left the ABA in favour of the Premier Basketball League for 2008/09 where they remained until the Spring of 2011 when they became a founding member of the new National Basketball League of Canada. Following the 2011-12 season a dispute with the Québec City government over rental fees for their home arena forced the club to relocate to Laval, Québec for 2012-13, the team kept the nickname and are now known as the Laval Kebs.
