The Immigration and Citizenship Minister of Canada, Chris Alexander and Marie-France Kenny, President of the Fédération des communautés francophones et acadienne du Canada (FCFA), are celebrating the first National Francophone Immigration Week in the history of Canada that takes place from 3rd November to 9th November.
Francophone is an adjective which means French-speaking and this word is often used to describe a Native French-speaking  Person. In 2012, Canada welcomed over 3685 Francophone minority immigrants which is a 4% increase over 2011. This week, more than hundred activities are being held to celebrate the contributions of Francophone immigrants to create French – speaking communities  in Canada.

 Alexander said, We have seen a consistent annual increase in the number of Francophone minority immigrants since 2006 and we will continue to promote initiatives to strengthen Canada’s Francophonie. This is an opportunity for Francophone immigrants across the country to come together and celebrate their unique culture—a culture that continues to flourish and to define Canada’s national identity.”
For us, immigrants are individuals and families who contribute to the prosperity of our communities; they are business people and professionals who hold key positions in our Francophone organizations,” said Marie-France Kenny, President of the FCFA. “They are our teachers, our doctors, and our agents for development. Most importantly, they are active participants in our Francophone communities and have created a diverse Francophone community of which we are very proud.
As immigration plays important role in encouraging the development  of Francophone minority communities, Chris Alexander said that the Government of Canada would continue to attract the best and brightest Francophone immigrants to ensure that Francophone communities flourish across Canada.Reinforcing these Francophone communities is part of our plan for economic growth and long-term prosperity throughout the country., He added.
It is often said that it takes a village to raise a child. Well, it also takes a community to welcome an immigrant. This is why, over the last decade, our communities have taken the initiative and set up a number of networks, services and structures to support immigrants and their families, added Mrs. Kenny.
National Francophone Immigration Week is a joint initiative of the Fédération des communautés francophones et acadienne du Canada (FCFA) and the Francophone Immigration Networks. This event is supported financially from the Citizenship and Immigration Canada and the participation of many partners.
