Canada encourages French-speakers to apply for immigration

Starting 1st June 2016 a new International Mobility Program stream will be launched, Mobilité Francophone.

Actively Canada is trying to attract experienced francophone workers to immigrate to communities outside of Quebec. Its main focus is to have francophone immigrants to make up 4% of economic immigrants by 2018. Mobilité Francophone will excuse employers from the Labour Market Impact Assessment process when hiring francophone workers in managerial, professional and skilled positions from abroad to work in communities outside of Quebec.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Minister John McCallum wants francophone minorities in Canada to continue to thrive and is hereby encouraging skilled worker to migrate to Canada and apply for permanent residency, if they wish to stay. As immigrants of this nature plays a major role in Canada’s economic, political and social development and Canada’s wealth and diversity has benefited greatly. Numerous initiatives has been launched to support francophone minority communities through immigration.

Francophone communities ought to benefit fully from all opportunities Mobilité Francophone offer.
