Canada's Immigration Evolution: Surge in French-Speaking Permanent Residents Marks Strategic Shift in 2024-2026 Plan
Canada’s Immigration Levels Plan for 2024-2026 underscores a significant emphasis on welcoming French-speaking Permanent Residents (PRs). The plan, guided by the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), outlines a goal of admitting 31,500 French-speaking PRs in 2025, followed by an increase to 36,000 in 2026.
While the overall admissions target remains stable at 500,000 new PRs for both years, notable growth is projected specifically in the “overall French-speaking PR Admissions outside Quebec” category, signaling a strategic shift in immigration priorities.
French-Speaking PRs: IRCC plans to welcome 31,500 French-speaking PRs in 2025 and 36,000 in 2026.
Admissions Stability: The overall admissions target remains stable at 500,000 new PRs for 2025 and 2026.
Category Growth: The "overall French-speaking PR Admissions outside Quebec" category sees a notable increase, rising by 4,500 in 2026.
Economic Pilots Decrease: The "Economic Pilots" category, including Agri-Food Pilot, faces a decrease from 14,750 in 2025 to 13,750 in 2026.
Rationale for Growth: Canada's strategic report, "An Immigration System for Canada’s Future," emphasizes enhancing Francophone communities' vitality.
IRCC's Action Plan:
New Francophone Immigration Policy
Boosted promotion for French-speaking PRs
Support for settlement and integration in Francophone communities
Ambitious targets for ongoing growth
Celebrating Success: National Francophone Immigration Week in November highlighted the contributions of French-speaking immigrants.
Investment in Official Languages: Canada's Action Plan for Official Languages allocates $18.5 million for global promotion of Francophone immigration and an additional $50 million for integration pathways.
Express Entry Innovations: Additional CRS points for French-language proficiency in Express Entry and a new category-based draw system with a focus on French-speaking candidates.
