Adwords Campaign for Francophone Community

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I want to start an Adwords Campaign for Canada. 
When deciding whether to start a campaign in french for reaching out the francophone community I encounter a Blog Post where they indicated we should reach out not only the Quebec province but also Ontario in order to reach all the francophone community. 
This was because most of the Bell/Sympatico IPs are pointing to servers located in Ottawa and Toronto. I wanted to confirm if this was still true (since the Blog Post is from 2006) and take it into consideration before starting my campaign.
Thank you for your support. 
Looking forward to hearing from you. 
Kind Regards,

Hi @Karla U;

Well... Centuries (in terms of internet and communication technology) have past since then, and Geo and language targeting are far more accurate today than 10 years ago... Smiley Surprised

I have a client targeting Canada and I haven't heard any complaints about Geo targeting in Canada. And I also  don't recall seeing any complaints on  this community.

Thank you MosheTLV, so if I target Quebec it should be enough for targeting all francophones in that area (100%).
