So I've been working in Quebec for about 7 or 8 years and worked a bit in BC when I went out this passed winter. I have circumstantially become a professional cook and am interested in furthering my potential. Options available to me here are applying at ITHQ (institut de tourisme et hotellerie du Quebec) and fulfilling a one-and-a-half year commitment (though that would require me to greatly improve my French writing skills) or attending an English school that receives about 1/4 the funding and has so-so reviews. Recently brought to my attention is the idea of doing a Red Seal certificate. Briefing myself on the process tonight, I believe that it is only popularized in Western Canada and parts of the US. Residing in Quebec, would this require me to relocate to do the certification? (which I don't really mind; I was thinking west anyway) Any feedback appreciated!
