How do I find a place to live in Quebec City?

"One of the best ways to find a place to live in Quebec City is to use online rental websites such as Kijiji, Craigslist, or PadMapper. These websites allow you to search for rental properties in the area and filter your results by price, location, and amenities. Additionally, you can contact local real estate agents who specialize in rental properties in the area. They can provide you with more information about the rental market and help you find a place that meets your needs. Finally, you can also look for rental postings in local newspapers and bulletin boards," remarked one foreigner who made the move to Quebec City.

"To find a place to live in Quebec City, there are a few options: searching rental websites, checking local newspapers and classifieds, asking family and friends, or looking into temporary accommodation or subletting while you find something more permanent. You can also look into the Quebec government's website, which can provide information on housing, subsidies and other programs that are available in the area. Additionally, real estate agents, rental agencies, and apartment buildings can be useful when searching for a new home.
