How's your French?

You can migrate to the rest of Canada as an IT professional, you just need a job offer first, but it's something many on this forum have done.

Is it true that you can live and work in Montreal with absolutely minimal to no French? I'm talking about just general living really as opposed to immigration law.

We did take a Quebec assessment last week but failed because of our lack of French but it looks like quite an interesting area.

i m also confused about the assessment of educations. i have done Masters in Computer Sciences(16 years of educations). i don't know what is equivalent to this in Quebee.
I have done IELTs with 7 band and plus 7 years work experience in IT.
So what do u think what are my chances

You can do I believe, there are English speaking pockets and fluent French isn't essential to get by - but as you've correctly said, you do need to speak French for visa purposes usually.

Which you can't blame them for I guess, they have absolutely every right to stand by their roots and it is their official language after all.

My OH currently has a bit of free time so she is trying to learn as much French as possible since we thought it would be useful in Canada anyway and she already speaks 3 languages so with any luck French wouldn't be too difficult for her.

From what I've seen, you pretty much need French in order to pass the eligibility test although I'm not sure of what level of fluency it needs to be.

The standard they are looking for is 'A' level +. You may get called for an interview, which could well be in French. I believe you have to provide the results of IELTS or TEF with your application.

I think he meant in the eyes of the French-Canadian immigration authorities, not in the eyes of the UK educational curriculum.
