With his second term underway, Quebec Premier François Legault has stated that he wants all immigrants coming to the province under economic immigration programs to be able to speak French. In October, the Coalition Avenir Quebec (CAQ) won a majority in the Quebec general election under leader Francois Legault. Throughout his campaign, Legault made it clear that he believed excessive immigration rates threatened both the French language’s future within Quebec and also its people’s cultural identity. According to the latest data from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), economic immigration this year accounts for almost 65.1 percent of total immigration to Quebec. In the past two decades, there has been a decrease in the number of people on the island of Montreal who speak French.
