Canada wants to remain a strong nation worldwide including though its cultural and economic influence, and therefore through the assimilation of – and an opening on – Francophonie:
274 million French speakers in the world
7.4 million in Canada
Massive immigration attraction policies of Francophones in Canada.
Objective to increase Francophone population outside Quebec by 4.4% by 2023 – without having to go through a Labour Market Impact Assessment (“LMIA”), in other words, without having to prove that a foreign talent is so unique that no other Canadians can undertake the work.
Government’s 2018-2023 budget for official languages: $ 2.7 billion.
Francophones, take advantage of it!
