English schools in Quebec and Montreal offer some of the highest quality education in the world. In the province of Quebec, Bill 101 (and Bill 115) state that children must be educated in French until the end of secondary school, but there are special cases where students can pursue an English education at a private school.
Attend a free seminar on English school eligibility and Bill 101 at the Our Kids Private School Expo in Montreal, held every September. Please RSVP to attend.
