I don't think there's much of a difference in terms of response time for francophones and anglophones. As was mentioned with respect to the processing capacity for African applications, there is one office in Cameroon. However, we have a presence in just 17 of Africa's 54 countries. And yet, Africa has the largest population of French speakers in the world and it's where there's going to be population growth
The processing capacity for applications from Africa is, to be sure, one of our priorities.
As for other areas, I naturally would mention delays that occur at our post-secondary institutions with respect to student visas. In September, there was an entire cohort of students that was still living in uncertainty, and who didn't know whether they were going to get these visas or not. Often, only a fraction of those who apply for admission are accepted and come here.
We have also heard that francophone employers are experiencing many problems and have perhaps become less confident in the system. Francophones are making efforts to have francophone foreign workers come here, but it takes an enormous amount of time.
What we do is spend a crazy amount of time making employers aware in order to encourage them to have francophone immigrants and workers come here, but the processing delays are not meeting the labour market requirements. If the processing capacity issue is not dealt with, it will become very difficult for us to encourage francophones and employers to use these programs. Everything is of course interrelated.
