Key facts on the French language in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia in 2021

Released: 2023-07-19

Today, Statistics Canada is releasing four new fact sheets that describe the situation of the French language in Manitoba, in Saskatchewan, in Alberta and in British Columbia in 2021, along with certain trends observed since 1991.

These fact sheets are based on data from the 1991 to 2021 censuses of population, together with the 2011 National Household Survey. They provide information on the evolution of the population that can conduct a conversation in French or have French as their first official language spoken, mother tongue, language spoken at home or language used at work. In addition, they contain information on schooling in French in primary and secondary schools, on the French language among recent and established immigrants and on the mobility and birthplaces of persons whose first official language spoken is French.


The fact sheets "Key facts on the French language in Manitoba in 2021," "Key facts on the French language in Saskatchewan in 2021," "Key facts on the French language in Alberta in 2021" and "Key facts on the French language in British Columbia in 2021," which are part of the Ethnicity, Language and Immigration Thematic Series (Catalogue number89-657-X), are now available.
