    whew don't remind me of that goal. I'm conditioning my body right now and just managed a 5K without being winded too much.

    I'm wondering, how is the employment status of nurses in Quebec?

    Hope I can get work as nursing assistant there.

    Sorry as the wife and mother of Canadian Forces members, 5K is nothing. Try it with 30 odd kilos on your back.

    Quebec keeps itself separate from the rest of the nation. The few Quebecoise posters that this site has, have not been complimentary on their working condition or wages.

    From my friends that are life long Quebec residents, wages are low and conditions are poor. Much worse if an Anglophile with basic French skills. Even the English facilities require French fluency (as does the province). I think my friend described Quebec the best, a country within a country. After visiting Montreal and Old Montreal, it was very different and almost old world . When I later visited (now) family in Toronto, I was surprised how different Montreal was in relation to other provinces. While I studied the equivalent of 4 years if French, I am basic and not fluent but I can read and understand the language well enough to get around. Even after working with native speakers for a Montreal & Missisagua (guaranteed misspelling on my phone & I apologize in advance) based pharmaceutical research company for over 7 years, I would not attempt the French language exam. Good thing my position was US based and I did not need to...

    That's the thing that most posters miss on this topic. The Quebec immigration policy was set up to permit rapid movement of French speaking migrants to la belle province. Think France, the Benelux nations, Haiti, and the former French African colonies.

    It was never meant to be utilized by non native English speakers from around the world.

    I know. I'm taking things slow. My last training was my COQC and that was like almost 10 years ago. But I'm determined to do something while waiting for that chance.

    I'm hoping to receive my AOR from Quebec immigration soon.

    Looks like it will be a hard climb for me to work in Quebec....
    Just make sure you activate your AOR before the date of your medical otherwise you have to start all over again
