On November 6, 2023, Immigration Minister Marc Miller commemorated the 11th National Francophone Immigration Week by highlighting the contributions of Francophone immigrants to the cultural, demographic, and economic landscape of Canada. The government has set new admission goals for French-speaking immigrants outside of Quebec, aiming for 6% in 2024, 7% in 2025, and 8% in 2026, as part of Canada’s pledge to reinforce minority Francophone populations and address labor shortages. The government has consulted on a forthcoming Francophone immigration policy, set to launch soon under the revamped Official Languages Act. The policy’s objective is to assist Francophone communities beyond Quebec. #Francophone_immigration, #French_Speaking_Immigrants.
