We have some information on certificate of eligibility on our site here: http://www.ourkids.net/english-language-schools-montreal.php#cert as well as a list of English language schools, including a number of schools that do not require a certificate to apply. The English-language private schools in Quebec that do not require English eligibility are those that do not receive subsidization from the province of Quebec. Most elementary programs are not subsidized and therefore do not require eligibility, but many private secondary schools do receive this subsidization. We advise contacting the schools of your choice to inquire about their eligibility requirements and application process.
