Economic immigration

In essence, RDÉE Canada’s main concern is the economic progress of the Canadian Francophonie. RDÉE Canada, along with every provincial or territorial organization that is a member of its Network, is a unique gateway for facilitating employability and doing business in French in Canada’s Francophone and Acadian communities. Together, they have the expertise and relationships that Francophone and bilingual immigrants and Canadian employers need before, during and after the economic integration of newcomers.

  • 25% of the Canadian population will be over the age of 65
  • 5 million Canadians, including half of today’s Canadian entrepreneurs, will be retired
  • The fertility rate in Canada is expected to fall to 1.5 children per woman (it was already a mere 1.58 children per woman in 2017, and the replacement level is at least 2.05 children per woman)
