English version | OIIQ
One of the main criteria to be fully licensed in Quebec is to be fluent in French and pass a French language evaluation in written communication, reading comprehension, oral communication and listening skills. Quebec is not tolerant of those who do not take the language requirements seriously. Since French is the official language of this province the majority of the information and resources are only offered in French.

We appreciate russian nurses because we know they do like to work well and they have a certain discipline. The 30 day integration is paid by the way so I really dont see what the big deal is and why you wouldn't want to get it. As for the french, even if you didnt ask, you better be speaking/writing it if you want to work anywhere in Montreal!

I still have to submit an application for evaluation and I am wondering if I should take the highschool french first before i submit my OIIQ application. Thanks for the help, in advance. I am still adjusting into the quebecoise society since I have only arrived fr the Phil. a week ago.
- 1Feb 17, '13 by uRNmywayQuote from jonna1318My understanding is that the only way you can avoid the french competency tests is if your education was in french...not just some high school 101 french. Remember that most people in quebec are french speakers. There are a lot of them who stubbornly refuse to learn english, just to make a point. If you were to be working and have one of these people as a patient, I can just see the stink being caused. However, if you are immigrating from another country you can look into free french classes. Quebec and the french mentality and lifestyle are very ummm...special... I grew up in it and it still infuriates me lol.Hi,I am very new here and I would like to ask if anyone has heard about taking french in highschool so you wouldnt have to take the language test required by OIIQ.

- 0Jan 14 by ruby.vhello guyz,
I m new to the forum, n i jus luv it. Almost all my doubts were clarified aftr readin this thread.
I have studied from India and working in ER as staff nurse since 1 and half yr. I have received my OIIQ application form packet n they have asked for a 'comparative evaluation of studies done outside quebec'. Now this is a news for me b'coz i hav been reading threads on OIIQ reistration for quite a long time and no body mentioned about it. I tried to find out more about it but the application form for comparative evaluation itself is in french which i cud not understand. They are also asking for approx 125 CAD for comparative evaluation. Now if the evaluation was to be done by MICC only then what is OIIQ sitting for n why is OIIQ charging 690 CADs.
Has any body gone though this procedure. your views will b highly appriciated!!
