Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? Good to live with Quebecois people, meant I could choose where I lived.
Personal comments:
Choice of finding a place through HEC (GIA Gestion) or finding a place yourself. Very easy to find an apartment to share in Montreal as everyone sublets. Most people seemed happy with their GIA Gestion accommodation as well.

Travelling in and around Montreal is great. Trips to Toronto, Niagara Falls, Quebec City, NYC and Boston.
