I'm a Canadian living in the UK who writes user guides in American English.
Gads. The moral of the story is, it doesn't really matter where you come
from or where you're based, you're going to be writing in whatever style
suits your audience.

With regards to relocation/job advice, I suggest that you subscribe to the
Montreal Techwriting mailing list at . A very friendly bunch of
people who would be more than happy to answer any queries - they even let us
ex-pats join in on the fun. ;)

I'm happy to answer any questions offline as well, so just give a shout.
Best of luck!
