Forgive me if this has been asked and answered; I'm new to the forum. I was listening to the Montreal feed and was surprised to hear commands been given in French. I had thought English was the international language for ATC. Is this a special situation in Quebec, and is it based on pilot's preference which language to use?

Thanks for a great website.

Pilots are permitted to use French in Quebec if they wish.

English is the "recommended" language of aviation by ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization).

It is not a mandatory thing.

True, I live in Quebec and my dad works for ICAO. No such rule. Its actually pretty cool to hear this feed as its the only one where people will speak french compared to the other ATC feeds in Canada
