Canada Francophone Immigration

With an aim of increasing the number of permanent residents who can speak French, Canada has created a Francophone Immigration Policy Hub. I.R.C.C. hopes that this move will permit better coordination in increasing Francophone immigration. It will improve communication between federal and provincial/territorial officials, on methods to achieve the targets of Francophone immigration.

A major task of the hub is finalizing the departmental strategy to achieve the targets of Francophone immigration.

It is working with the aim of increasing the number of immigrants who can speak French, outside Quebec to 4.4 percent of the total immigrants. The target is for doing this before 2023.

PM Trudeau announced that the government has a plan to spend an additional $40.8 million in the next five years regarding Francophone immigration.

Great Commitment to work

Ahmed Hussen, Immigration Minister stated that the department has a commitment to work in collaboration with Francophone institutions and organizations. This will ensure that the immigration strategy is a reflection of the need of Francophone communities residing in areas other than Quebec.

Methods adopted by Canada to Boost Francophone Immigration

Mobilite Francophone

Under this, a few high-skilled workers, having ability in French language, get an exemption from the requirements of Labor Market Impact Assessment. Moreover it is a specific stream managed by the International Mobility Program and is used to support a permanent job offer in Express Entry.

Additional EE points

From June 2017, up to 30 extra Canada Express Entry points are available for candidates who possess strong skills in French language.

Annex to Canada-Ontario Immigration Agreement

An annex to the announcement of Canada-Ontario Immigration Agreement in April 2018 focuses on greeting French-speaking immigrants to this province. Ontario also conducts weekly draws in the French-Speaking Skilled Worker stream.

Other Provincial Program

There are several provincial immigration programs in the country which have an aim to fast-track candidates speaking French.

Action Plan to Increase Francophone Immigration outside Quebec

  • Through Promotion of awareness regarding such immigration opportunities, settlement services and pathways to potential applicants speaking French.
  • By increasing engagement of employers in French-speaking immigrant process for recruitment and employment ;
  • Furthermore  to increase  the availability, accessibility and awareness of French language services; and
  • Finally, providing necessary Support  Francophone communities which are diverse and inclusive.
