Living in Saguenay

Culture

The main language used in the Saguenay―Lac-Saint-Jean region is French.

In the 2016 Census, less than 1% of the population’s inhabitants declared that they spoke English and around 18% consider themselves bilingual . Learning French is thus essential to your proper adaptation. Some families do however speak English fluently as well as French.
 
The MFRC offers "French as a Second Language" and "English as a Second Language" courses of various levels at very economical rates for military family members.
