How will the new Action Plan encourage immigration of French-Speakers?

Building French-speaking communities in Canada, especially outside of Quebec, depends largely on immigration from French countries. In order to achieve this, the Action Plan will invest $13.4 million over the course of five years on a new operational and policy structure for a French-speaking immigration that will review overall governance and current commitments under the French-speaking Immigration Strategy, which was announced in 2019.

What does the government think about this plan?

According to the government, the new operational framework policy would promote immigration of French speakers and make it easier for French-speaking or bilingual immigrants to establish and adapt into French-speaking minority groups.

Additionally, $18.5 million will be spend over the course of five years to build recruitment support across the globe, including in Africa, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas.

Furthermore, the Francophone Integration Pathway will receive $50 million over the course of five years. This Pathway makes the immigration easier and increases the minority French-speaking communities.

With a focus on early learning, $16.3 million will be committed over five years to support a number of focused, interconnected projects with the goal of increasing overseas recruitment of primary and secondary-level French teachers as well as French-speaking teachers.

Finally, the government planned to invest $3.5 million in existing programs to improve French-speaking and bilingual immigration.
