Living in Sherbrooke

Sherbrooke is a city of just over 150,000 residents in Q, Canada. It lies at the confluence of the Magog and St. Francis rivers in the center of the Estrie region. It is the cultural, economic and political center of this region and is known as "The Queen of the Eastern Townships" that characterize the area.

Moving to Sherbrooke

While Sherbrooke does have an airport but it does not offer scheduled flights. There is a good bus service, however, with connections to Montreal and Q City. Expats moving to Sherbrooke by road will find it at the eastern end of the A-10, which connects to Montreal and on the Trans-Q Autoroute A-55. Interstate 91, meanwhile, heads south into the USA and Vermont. Sherbrooke is also a major rail hub, connecting three separate railroads; namely the Montreal, Maine and Atlantic Railway, Q Central Railway and St. Lawrence and Atlantic Railroad. These in turn connect to the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific railways. Expatriates in Sherbrooke will find a good selection of historic and culturally significant neighborhoods, such as Ascot, Le quartier Universitaire and Collinsville. For insider information on which neighborhoods may be best to live in and other useful city tips, new expats in Sherbrooke can consult other international residents on the forums of InterNations.

Working in Sherbrooke

Sherbrooke’s economy is dominated by its higher education establishments. There is also a large teaching hospital in the city. Manufacturing has declined in the area but the service sector and knowledge economy, based around the universities, is thriving. This high-tech, research and academic economy means lots of expats are working in Sherbrooke in these high quality jobs. As the city moves away from manufacturing and into these new areas, it creates many excellent opportunities for expats living in Sherbrooke. To make the most of these, a membership at InterNations allows you to network with other global minds in the city, in Canada, and across the world, making new connections and perhaps uncovering new opportunities. These online facilities are enhanced by the Expat Magazine, which offers lots of articles on the expatriate lifestyle.
