Economic Immigration

See what awaits you in Canada!

153,000 Francophone immigrants have already settled in Canada outside Quebec. Our country wants to welcome more economic immigrants and has expressed the desire to increase the percentage of French-speaking economic immigrants to 4% by 2018.

RDÉE Canada and its members are working to promote the recruitment and economic integration of immigrants in the Francophone and Acadian communities (FACs).

They act as the critical link between investors, employers, permanent residents, temporary workers and the Francophone and Acadian communities, and they have a direct impact on their economic vitality.

From 2011 to 2014, the Network organized 181 information and engagement sessions involving 1,727 employers. Topics ranged from the advantages of hiring Francophone or bilingual newcomers to hiring processes.

Network members provided employment services to 1,870 permanent residents and 2,667 temporary workers.
