Mr. Speaker, we know that strengthening the bilingual nature of our country depends on the vitality of communities where French is the minority language.
French gives Canada a competitive edge. The immigration strategy provides that 4.4% of French-speaking immigrants will be admitted to Canada outside Quebec as permanent residents by 2023.
Will the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship tell us whether that target will indeed ensure the vitality of an official language?
Is he confident that his government will meet this target despite the pandemic?
