Thank you, Mrs. Boucher.
I am going to finish my answer, which actually had two parts. First, there is the restoration of the Francophone Significant Benefit program. Second, there is the fact that we have to work with the provinces. Unfortunately, we sometimes see that these decisions are actually made at the provincial level.
That being said, there have still been breakthroughs on this issue. At our Ministerial Conference on the Canadian Francophonie in St. John's, I had an opportunity to talk about the immigration issue.
In addition, my New Brunswick counterpart, Francine Landry, raised this question at the conference on immigration in Winnipeg a few weeks ago. We want to make sure that we work with the provinces. We want the money intended for integration in French to be actually spent by the provinces.
Of course, I want to work with Mr. McCallum to achieve the 4.4% francophone immigration target, which has not been achieved for years. That objective has been defined repeatedly, but, unfortunately, it has never been achieved, given past under-investment. At a time when we are developing new immigration thresholds, we want to be sure we reach 4.4% francophone immigration.
