    MONTREAL, September 29, 2016 - With its outdated and overly permissive laws, the government of Quebec has allowed the unprincipled operation of second language schools that exploit the vulnerability of foreign students.

    “In Quebec, it is all too easy to take advantage of international students”, explains Gonzalo Peralta, Executive Director of Languages Canada, adding,” While some provinces corrected the problem years ago, Quebec is unfortunately in last place in this regard. This translates into more and more students getting duped when they come to Quebec.”
