Wave 81 – Hello, Québec

It is with great pride and enthusiasm that we are publishing our first "trilingual" edition: Portuguese, English, and French.

In this Easter edition, our focus is also on the province of Québec and, of course, we could not stop “speaking French”. We are taking this opportunity to venture on a new venue, seeking a closer relationship with the Brazilian community that lives in the province of Québec.

This edition is welcomed by an exclusive message to Wave readers from the Honourable Valérie Pante, Mayor of Montréal. Kika Martinez interviews Vanessa Conti Irion, a cultural producer whose work involves helping culturally diverse artists enter the local labour market.

For the Community section, we invited Rúbia Albuquerque and Rosemary Baptista to share a little about the lives of Brazilians living in Montréal, among them: Weslley Novais, Stella Carollina, the couple Lincoln and Isabella, Gabriela Passos, Anne-Sophie Garcia, and Roberto Menegati.

Tourism is the fifth major industry in the province of Quebec. Since it is difficult to showcase tourism in a province whose territory is almost 3 times greater in size than that of France in a sole article, Christian Pedersen explores 10 prominent regions. In the Immigration section, Mariana Chagas writes about the Québec Experience Program. In the “Study in Canada” section, we introduce a list of more than 25 schools for young people and adults who are seeking to study in the province of Quebec. Claudia Gomes writes about the real estate market in Montréal, which is very dynamic in the aspects of buying, selling and renting.

Easter dinner? Try Tatin’s Tarte recipe. The pear version was created exclusively for the Easter edition of the Brazilian Wave magazine by the Brazilian Chef, Fernando Paris. And be sure to read the Marketplace section. We are always updating the list of professionals and services that “speak our language”. Support our Brazilian community!

Wave magazine is multiplatform and the trilingual content is published extensively in our online platform: www.brazilianwave.ca

Happy Easter!
