Knowledge of French

Knowledge of the French language is key to your integration and participation in Québec society. As soon as you arrive in Québec, you’ll be immersed in a French-speaking environment. Everything from finding a place to live and opening a bank account to enrolling your children in school will be done in French.

French is the official language of Québec and the language most often used in public life, at work, in communication and in business.

If you’d like to start learning French or improve your knowledge of the language before you arrive in Québec, you can consult the free bank of online French exercises. You can also register for distance or online courses, which may require you to pay fees.

You can also take French courses in your country.
