You are right if i read the bottom of this link correctly, but it will probably require dealing with Quebecs bureaucracy and filling out lots of forms.

From what I have heard it is not that difficult to get if you truly are a temporary worker.

Odd school as it is located in one of the highest price neighborhoods in Canada yet all its students come from some of the lowest price neighborhoods in the country.
No self respecting Westmount resident would send their kids to that school.

Usually any English resident of Quebec has the choice of sending their kids to public English or French school also Bilingual school or French immersion school, not sure how that translates to temporary residents..

Bilingual schools: 50% of the day in English and 50% of the day in French. Subjects that are in either language can vary from school to school. You could do science in French, math in English, gym class in French, music in English, etc.

English: all topics in English with French taught as a second language only in French class

French immersion: all topics taught in French except for English (grammar and literature - though not taught as a second language); generally for English-speaking kids; school environment from a parental perspective is in English, and homework is designed so that parents who are not so good in French don't have too much difficulty helping out

French: all topics in French with English taught as a second language only in English class; school environment generally in French only as are all communications with parents.

Note sure what E&I means.

(Roughly 90% of all kids in Quebec are in the "French" system, including close to 90% of the children of recent immigrants.)
