The Canada guide

Latest articles

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.

The government of Quebec offers various programs for immigrants to help them integrate the labour market. If you want to move to Montreal, you may enjoy those services in order to do a professional internship. However, you must know that these programs are generally set up for young people because of the higher unemployment rate in certain communities and visible minorities. Here are a few programs you may want to try.

Before moving to Montreal, you must have a good idea of the various neighbourhoods in order to avoid unpleasant surprises. Montreal is a favourite destinations for newcomers. You can get more information during an information meeting at the Immigration Ministry. Like every region in Quebec, it is recommended to visit a neighbourhood before committing to live there.

In order to bring your pet to Quebec, you must check the applicable transportation conditions with the airline company you will be flying with. These conditions will be different according to its race, its weight, its size and the cage you will bring it in. If the airline company does not offer special prices for pets, the price will be calculated on the same basis as excess luggage.

Quebec is a region famous for helping small and medium-sized businesses. A lot of immigrants come to Quebec to set up a business to put their skills to use, while others do it as a part of their travel and expatriation project.
