The Francophone Significant Benefit program was relaunched in June, and that is exactly its objective. The return of this program was lauded by a number of people in the community.
We also want to put the French language skills of the people we admit to work, in order to achieve the objective of 4.4% francophone immigration. I am working very hard on this with the Minister, Mr. McCallum I would like to say that Mr. McCallum is doing an extraordinary job and he is a real ally when it comes to official languages and promoting the francophone minority community. This is a discussion I also have to have with the government of Manitoba and that my colleague at Immigration has to have with his counterparts.
That is why I think our approach to official languages is so important. We have to have allies in all areas and in all departments, and all ministers have to have responsibility for official languages.
As I said earlier, my team and I will be very interested in reading your report, as will Mr. McCallum and his team.
