Before starting your house hunt in Canada, you must determine the kind of accommodation you need. You should also check if you can buy a house or an apartment or if you prefer renting it.

In Quebec, accommodation price is still quite affordable compared to prices you can find in big European cities. However, these prices can be different according to the area because some neighbourhoods are more popular than others, like the Plateau Mont-Royal in Montreal.

You will have different options in order to work in Canada: you can find a job from abroad, you can be in a relationship with someone who will study or work in Canada with a valid permit, you can apply for one of the three options of the International Experience Canada (IEC) program or you can request a permanent residency.

Canada is a number one destination to get a first professional experience. An internship in the country will help you discover North America and improve your English or your French (even both) because Canada is a bilingual country.
