migrating to quebec

Hi,

We are a couple considering moving to Quebec. We work for the software industry. With very basic knowledge for french, is it ok to move in there ? Is it true that you have be speaking good french to even secure a job in any industry in Quebec ?

Please advice.

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...

Thanks Ruthal.. That just confirms what i have been hearing, reading and thinking.

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.....

Thanks.. This is helpful

Is it true that you have to produce a french test certificate before applying to quebec?My wife doesn't speak and write french?

Yes. The new rules require to produce a test certificate. Guess it was changed last year.

HI,

So, u must passes required level of French..It will be better to settle there.
