French and British side of what?

You will need to be fluent in French to work in Quebec. Do a search on here as there have been many threads about immigrating to Quebec.

first of all thanks for the comment

but what i have seen after looking on the site is that all information about immigration nursing to Quebec is at least 2 years old

i would like if you could direct me, please, to link about current situation in quebec .

Are you fluent in French? It doesn't matter if you work in a Francophile or Anglophile facility you need to successfully pass a French language exam to be fully licensed in Quebec. French is the official language of Quebec.

Quebec doesn't have a "British side".

A better question is do you want to embrace a Francophone lifestyle and have your children educated in French? If yes, go ahead with your plans.

If no, admit to yourself that you are only wanting to migrate to la belle province and use it as a back door into Canada because the Quebec immigration programme is more flexible.

Yunick is right. All the information is at least 2 years old. Has anyone gone through the process recently? I really just want to know how long it takes to get an answer from oiiq. How long does it take to evaluate your credentials and give an answer?

I am fluent in French. Not a problem. And I actually WANT to settle in Q.
