true as I confirmed with friend, but you will have to wait a couple of months to get it and you will have to attend full-time course. so this is easy money unless you are really interested in studying French. AS for Ottawa, it is betwween English Canada and French Canada, you are expected to speak some French if you want to do well. However you can be still considered Quebec resident if you stay more than three months inthe province and less than two months in other provinces and still be eligible for everythings. So why do not you have have a look at other places? If you are just rich enough, you can stop over at Vancouver and Toronto to have a look.
