values test: The target number would mean a 24 per cent drop from the roughly 52,400 immigrants Quebec accepted last year, according to CTV. We are concerned about any proposal to reduce the number of immigrants, said Montreal Board of Trade president Michel Leblanc. Leader Francois Legault, a former businessman, pledged during the campaign to chop the number of immigrants to 40,000 a year from 50,000 and require them to pass a language and values test after three years in the province. We need to have more. Legault, whose party won Monday's election with 74 of the province's 125 ridings, has said he wants to increase efforts to integrate immigrants and ensure they learn French, rather than ramp up the number of new arrivals. Leblanc said many areas of the province are now beyond full employment, with a demand for more qualified workers in sectors from hospitality to transportation to Quebec's flourishing tech scene.
