She declined to comment on Canada's radio on Wednesday morning after breaking the news.
However, during the last week, she has been deeply opposed to her party's French policy and openly talked about her future with personal computers.
These policies include deregulated activities aimed at reducing the number of provincial commissioners in the French language service.
Computers are moving forward by removing funding for the new French-language university.
Simards were elected during her first term of office in Queen's Park this June to represent the journey with many francophones.
The latest census showed that 66% of her riding was able to communicate in both official languages.
She was the first non-liberal MPP for driving, which was set up in 1999.
