According to Jack Jedwab, leader of the Association for Canadian Studies, it is Quebec’s language law and policies on immigration that encourage trilingualism. The city favors French-speaking immigrants, but most of them also speak English, along with their native tongue. “Quebec politicians are well aware that, globally speaking, if we want the best talent pool, if we want to attract people with economic skills in a very competitive talent market, they are going to attract a lot of people who are able to speak both English and French,” said Jedwab. The laws make diversity normal and welcomed in Quebec. If you are interested in relocating, this is a very welcoming place to consider. Canadian Visa Expert will assist you in the entire process of immigration.
