Francophone immigration research

On November 8, 2023, The Government of Canada supports research into Francophone immigration. The Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), Marc Miller, announced an $85,000 grant for the Université de l’Ontario français to support the Observatoire en immigration francophone au Canada. 

This initiative will establish an oversight committee to define the observatory’s mission and governance, 

address Francophone immigration research concerns, and guide the Government of Canada’s efforts in this area. 

A portion of the funds will go towards a survey on Francophone immigration research needs in Canada. This endeavor underscores Canada’s commitment to promoting Francophone immigration outside Quebec, enriching cultural and linguistic diversity, and bolstering local economies.

The funding will enable the formation of an oversight committee composed of university and community representatives, which will assist key players in the Francophone immigration sector in their work. The mission, objectives, and governance model of the observatory will be defined and validated. The project will assess various groups’ concerns about Francophone immigration research. 

This increased knowledge and understanding of the realities of Francophone immigration will allow the Canadian government to better direct its efforts in this area. 

Newcomers who speak French contribute to our country’s cultural and linguistic diversity while also strengthening the economic systems of the communities where they settle. Canada is continuing to promote Francophone immigration outside of Quebec, which is a top priority for the coming years.

The Honourable Marc Miller, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship stated:

“French immigration is critical to the vitality and growth of Francophone communities outside of Quebec.” The Observatoire en immigration francophone au Canada will help to promote the reception and integration of Francophone immigrants in Canada. The observatory is a great example of how community partners can help us achieve our ambitious goals for Francophone immigration and strengthening Francophone minority communities across the country.”
