Marc Miller announces new policies for Francophones

The Francophone policies outside Quebec have been gaining significant attention in recent years as Canada continues to strive for linguistic diversity and inclusivity. There have been notable developments in Francophone policies outside Quebec, shaping a more inclusive and supportive environment for French speakers across the country.

 The most recent Immigration Levels Plan 2024–2026 published in Canada states that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) hopes to accept 31,500 French-speaking permanent residents (PRs) in 2025 and 36,000 entrants in the same category in 2026.IRCC has previously announced that the target for the year 2024 is is 6% and 7% in 2025, this is mainly why there have been continuous improvements.

The immigration minister Marc Miller stated that “The numerous measures we are implementing will attract skilled Francophone workers who will support the economic and cultural development of these communities. Our efforts to ensure the successful reception and integration of French-speaking newcomers support our unwavering commitment to restoring and increasing the demographic weight of Francophone minority communities.” 

On 16th January 2024 announced a series of initiatives that will support Francophone immigration. These policies include  a new Francophone immigration policy, the renewal and expansion of the Welcoming Francophone Communities initiatives, a new program to support Francophone immigration, and the implementation of the Action Plan for Official Languages. 

*Note: The new Action Plan for Official Languages represents $1.4 billion over five years in new investments in the form of 32 new or enhanced measures to be implemented under four pillars: Francophone immigration, official language learning, community development and government leading by example.*

Fourteen Canadian towns will continue to get funds to support the integration of French-speaking immigrants as part of the continuation of the Welcoming Francophone towns initiatives. The program will be expanded to enable the Canadian government to choose up to ten additional Canadian communities capable of facilitating the integration of French-speaking newcomers. Canada is continuously making it easier for Francophone minority communities to participate in international promotion initiatives and support and recruit French-speaking candidates. 

These actions will support the long-term development, vitality, and strengthening of minority Francophone communities outside of Quebec. In order to improve these communities, the Government of Canada will keep collaborating with the provinces, territories, and important stakeholders.
