Canada is all set to increase the Francophone (French-speaking) immigration. The step that was reportedly been taken recently has been revealed by the Canada’s citizenship and immigration minister Chris Alexander to the media after holding talks with the stake holders and respective community leaders in Canada, particularly outside Quebec.
The reports indicated that Chris Alexander was said to have confirmed, in the meeting, that a wide range consultation process would be initiated in near future that would aim at promoting the Francophone immigration.
The minister has reportedly said that this move would strengthen the vibrancy of French-speaking communities that are already existing outside Quebec.
It may be recalled that Canada has been paying close attention to Francophone immigration. The statistics, in fact, revealed that the French-speaking immigration rose by at least four per cent in 2012 compared to the previous year.
The immigration experts have opined that this move, which would further strengthen the network of French speaking people in Canada, would pave new ways in the Canada’s immigration system.
In the years to come, there are possibilities that French would become one of the important languages of Canada, added experts.
