I have lived in the US for a very long time and being bilingual has given me a real edge in getting continuous employment. So many American firms are doing business with Canada because it is the number one economical partner and Canadian law recognises two official languages, French and English. This is requiring that contracts be available in both languages as well as all marketing material.
But the best part is that having a bi-cultural experience is beneficial to all.
It makes us richer in experience, knowledge and understanding.
