Re: migrating to quebec

It depends where you are planning to settle. Montreal, Gatineau should be destination to consider because you can easily find jobs where English is a must.

I would choose Gatineau...

20 years ago, moving to Montreal without speaking French could have been an issue.  No longer holds true!  Most everyone speaks English and French schols are in abundance!  When in Rome....that is my mantra and I speak French as much as I possibly can, but business, computer and tech areas are all English.....

HI,

we are also planning for Quebec & according to the new rules updated on 5/12/2011...U must have to submit required level of French language.It varies from applicant to applicant.
So, u must passes required level of French..It will be better to settle there.
