Canada needs Francophone Immigrants

The official languages of Canada are French and English. Did you know that outside of Quebec, the majority of all other provinces in Canada have a majority English-speaking population. Most importantly there is a significant need to increase and enhance the French-speaking population.

Francophone Immigration

According to the 2016 Census from Statistics Canada: a whopping 75.4% are English-speaking compared to 22.8% French-speaking population as a total population across all provinces and territories. Therefore, I will list below all the provinces and territories to give you an overview.

The need for Francophone immigrants

As you notice in the table above and view all the provinces and territories, it is clear there is a need for more Francophone immigrants outside of Quebec. You may also read my post on What is your Immigration Plan? to learn about The Government of Canada’s goals and objectives.

Canada is a diverse country and welcomes people from all over the world. Similarly, Canada is founded with the principle of linguistic duality.

For instance, if you visit The Government of Canada website, the first option you get to choose is the language: English or French.

I mentioned earlier, outside of Quebec the French-speaking population is declining as shown in the table. As a result, there is a need for the French-speaking immigrants into Francophone communities. In addition, to reverse this decline and help promote the French language, culture and diversity.

Notes: The countries detailed do not represent all the countries that speak French. Similarly, some of the countries listed have French as their co-official language, minority, unofficial, majority spoken or widely used.

As you go through the list of countries and regions, you will notice that Africa has the most French speakers in the world. As a result, I would like to ask: Does Africa hold the future of the French language? Let me know what you think.

If you are from any of these countries listed or perhaps another country not listed, please contact me. I enjoy diversity, culture and learning French at a slow pace.
