Moving To Quebec
Are you are thinking of moving to Quebec? Canada is the world’s second largest country and French-speaking Quebec has a lot to recommend it. Roughly a quarter of all Quebec residents live in the Greater Montreal Area, including the island of Montreal, the English speaking institutions are concentrated in the west of the island.
Everyone in Canada has access to high quality healthcare, making it a very attractive place settle. You will need to get a visa; the Canadian Citizenship and Immigration service’s Visa Wizard will help you see if you are eligible. You should make sure all your vaccinations are up to date; hepatitis B is recommended, as well as rabies if you are likely to be working with animals. You will also need to be able to show you can support yourself and any dependants, unless you already have employment in Canada, you will also need to pass a medical exam.

When you first move to a new city finding your way round the local taxes and requirements can be daunting, a quick visit to the Expat Arrivals website can help you on your way. Simply visit http://www.expatarrivals.com/search/node/quebec%20canada
Walking around old Quebec City is a good idea. The narrow, crowded and winding streets would be very difficult in a car. On top of that, parking is usually expensive and difficult to find. The funicular, a kind of cable car, is a cheap and easy way to move between the Upper and Lower town. A cab is another possibility; most are yellow but not always!
