Immigrant Parents: Coalition Avenir and Official Language
immigrant parents: Not only are French classes free for immigrants in Quebec, but the state pays them to take the courses, according to CTV. It also subsidizes daycare costs for immigrant parents who study French. One of the Coalition Avenir Quebec's main pitches to get elected last fall was to temporarily reduce immigration and ensure the newcomers who are accepted can integrate by learning the province's only official language. Immigration Minister Simon Jolin-Barrette told reporters Friday he's sweetening the pot to gently push more newcomers to register for courses. Immigrants who take part-time French will now receive 15 a day, up from nothing. His department will spend an extra 70 million a year, he said, to create 300 new classes, hire 80 more teachers, and increase the weekly stipend for people who take full-time courses from 141 to 185.
