If you're talking freelance work (which I assume you do), it's a global market. As a representative for a translation agency it makes no difference to me if you are located in France or Canada.
This works to your advantage, because you can send your CV to agencies all over the place, don't limit yourself to France.
And from our point of view, it doesn't matter whether you're an EU citizen or not.
But maybe you're looking for a fixed position as in-house translator? Perhaps you could clarify?
Thanks Kaveri and Jan for your helpful advice! I have been looking at FUSAC online and even applied to a couple of jobs. I appreciate your comments on freelancing and I will try to follow up with companies listed on blueboard.
However, during my stay in France I require an in-house position to satisfy the visa regulations. My working-holiday visa grants me the right to look for work, but I need a letter from my employer to show I am working and will have a regular income.
