Canada is a bilingual country, with English and French as the two official languages. The Francophone Integration Pathway provides language training that helps French-speaking newcomers integrate into Francophone communities. French-speaking Canadian minority communities are primarily in Quebec. Canada's government is committed to finding and attracting skilled foreigners who can help grow the economy and fill local labour shortages across the country.
In announcing on July 3, 2019, that 7 selected organizations will provide language training via Welcoming Francophone Communities IRCC said,
Newcomers will receive training that improves their skills in one language while taking more intensive training in the other, depending on their needs. Being able to communicate in both official languages is important in Francophone minority communities, where English is often the primary language used at work and French is more frequently used in the community, at home and in other social settings.
The Quebec Immigration QEP program is for immigrants who have proven that they can successfully integrate into Quebec society, either through skilled work experience in Quebec or through international post-secondary education in Quebec.
