    @ 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!

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

    Here are some links:

    Immigration-Québec - Nursing training in Québec

    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.

    U do have to do the 30 day integration, as for your work experience, the only ones interested are the hospitals hiring you! 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 am still adjusting into the quebecoise society since I have only arrived fr the Phil. a week ago.
