    To miasat:

    Thanks a lot! Ahhm.. I could have a lesser pay on my application. Actually, I'm applying for the QSW category. That's why I'm asking how much is the expenses if I personally apply in oiiq. But as what was said from our co-nurse here in this thread, your not actually going to pay $500 for the exam if you passed, right? about $300 will be returned, right? Registration fee is quite expensive.. By the way, thank you so much for the information. Wow! I'm happy for your status right now.

    @ Miasat:

    So, you are not going to take the French exam anymore?? Because your are fully registered nurse in Manitoba already and that place use English language about 74%.

    Good luck!

    Hi miasat! Just want to ask if you also asked for an evaluation of your credentials and comply to other requirements, like IELTS, of the College of Nurses of Manitoba. Thanks in advance.

    Good day Miasat!

    ahmm.. another thing, did you take IELTS before you go there? Since, finding a nurse position job there will take time, did you have some part-time jobs or are there many part-time jobs to work there? I don't have any relatives there, so I will need a job to sustain my daily needs.

    Thanks! More power!

    hi,

    i'm new here. i just wanna ask. i'm also a Filipino. i'm currently studying french language and i'm done sending my requirements for quebec and got my decision letter already. the agency which helped me, told me to search for schools or hospitals where i would train there in quebec but right now, most bilingual hospitals are full already, as well as for the next sched, so only option is to apply training to hospitals/ schools which offers pure french but then i should be in an intermediate level in speaking french since we will be interviewed via skype. my question is, do you know how we can get to an intermediate level in speaking french? or do you know of certain hospitals/ schools who use both english and french as medium of instruction? is it true that we can't
    file our application for embassy if no school/ hospital in montreal will accept us? or can we just file for embassy and fly there in montreal and personally give our applications to the said hospitals?

    thanks

    Take this for what it's worth... which isn't much, because it's just my opinion... I'd have to be absolutely out of options before I'd think about working in Quebec. A lot of people there are very intolerant of those whose French isn't flawless. We Canadians often joke that we need a passport to cross the border from Ontario into Quebec because their laws and attitudes are so different from the rest of Canada. The Quebec government behaves as if Quebec is indeed a separate country. One of my children lives in Montreal and has a job in health care, but is also fluently bilingual, having been educated in French for the first 9 years of schooling. That comes in handy when I visit and we're in a restaurant - "Please order me the chicken!" Intermediate level French would be the equivalent of having taken French classes at the high school level for 3 years.

    You need to ask those questions of Quebec immigration (since they're a completely separate country after all! :icon_roll) because they're going to be the ones to decide what you can and can't do. But I wouldn't expect them to be all that helpful.

    @pucca1988You can try getting a visa and try to register there in Montreal. You got a lot of questions for someone who's planning to migrate. I hope you did your research before you took the jump. Good luck!

    hi,


    a person who has graduated in nursing outside of quebec and wants to get recognition of equivalence in order to obtain a license to practice in quebec must send a written request and submit a file to the order.

    you will find more information on our website:

    Quebec doesn't take CRNE they have their own exam you must take. CRNE is for the rest of Canada.
