In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Official Languages - March 3, 2014

Marie-France Kenny, president of the Fédération des communautés francophones et acadienne du Canada (FCFA), and her colleague Suzanne Bossé discuss the impacts of recent changes to the immigration system on official language minority communities. Their organization works at the national level to recruit, integrate and retain French-language immigrants. They describe how the FCFA has had to adapt some of its practices to reflect the changes favouring economic immigration. The witnesses also outline some recommendations to ensure new immigration initiatives do not negatively impact francophone communities.
Official Languages Minister Shelly Glover testifies during the second hour about her department's work in assessing any negative effects of the immigration changes. The minister also discusses the renewal and priorities contained in the government's roadmap for official languages and some of the challenges faced by her department. (March 3, 2014)
