Our history: from Clothilde & Gwen to C&G Relocation by Classe Affaires
Originally from France, the two masterminds behind C&G Relocation resettled their respective families in Montreal in 2011. And with five children between the two of them, this was no simple undertaking!
But what do an English teacher and a Parisian hospital nurse have in common? A certain resourcefulness, unlimited generosity, and a desire to share and teach that drives them to use their experience and expertise in service of those who have decided to move abroad, by creating C&G Relocation in 2017.
In 2021, the two entrepreneurs decided to join forces with Classe Affaires, a renowned specialist helping business people relocate to Canada to work, invest, start or take over companies. Our common goal is to offer you a perfectly seamless integration process, whether you are single, a couple, a family, an immigrant, a temporary worker, an investor or an entrepreneur.
Once you have qualified your immigration project, our relocation team, still under Clothilde’s expert supervision, allows you to benefit from tailor-made support, thanks to our three-part offer of services: Inform, Advise, Support.
Moving, schools, administration, housing, healthcare, business plan: the services of C&G Relocation by Classe Affaires adapt to all needs and budgets. You will save yourself from mistakes, stress, and wasted time, every step of the way to your new life in Canada.

A gift! Three free pieces of advice to all who move to Montreal:
- Be well prepared: this is an essential, but often neglected, step! Get the right documents, check job prospects, sign the children up for the day care waiting list, etc., are just a few examples of the tasks to anticipate.
- Get the best help: this is the raison d’être of Clothilde and the whole team at C&G by Classe Affaires: to support immigrants in every aspect of their goal and to be a crucial resource to aid them in this major life change.
- Persevere! The transition can prove easy or hard, you have to be ready for difficult times, but it’s worth the risk: look how radiant we are!
