If education is an important factor in choosing an immigration destination, think about Montreal. With access to six universities and twelve junior colleges in an 8 kilometer, Montreal has the highest concentration of post-secondary students of all major cities in North America.

English-language elementary and secondary public schools in the Greater Metropolitan Montréal Area are operated by the English Montreal School Board and the Lester B. Pearson School Board. French-language elementary and secondary public schools in Montreal are operated by the Commission scolaire de Montréal (CSDM), Commission scolaire Marguerite-Bourgeoys (CSMB) and the Commission scolaire Pointe-de-l’Île (CSPI).

The education system in the province of Quebec is slightly different from other systems in North America. Between the High School and University levels, there is an additional college level called “Cégep”. It is at the same time a preparatory school (preparing students for admission at the University) and a technical school (offering courses which lead to technical diplomas and specializations). In Montréal, there are 17 Cégeps where you can find help from Commonwealth Learning Center for students with learning challenges, offering courses in French and 5 in English.

Francophone universities include the Université de Montréal, Université du Québec, and the Université de Sherbrooke (Located in Sherbrooke, campus in Longueuil)
