Starting in June 2023, the Quebec Government will implement new regulations for permanent residency applications. Specifically, applicants will be required to demonstrate a high level of proficiency in the French language. This proficiency will be measured according to the Quebec scale of French proficiency levels for adult immigrants, with level 7 being the minimum required level. These changes are part of a broader effort by the Quebec government to promote and preserve the use of the French language in the province. While some have criticized the new regulations as too strict, others argue that they are necessary to maintain Quebec’s unique cultural identity and ensure that immigrants can fully integrate into Quebecois society.
