On November 10, 2022, the Government of Canada inaugurated the new Centre for Innovation in Francophone Immigration in Dieppe as part of National Francophone Immigration Week. The centre, being the first Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) office in southeastern New Brunswick, will help make immigration programs more accessible for French-speaking candidates, conduct case studies to meet the bilingual workforce needs of Francophone employers and communities, and support international promotion efforts to recruit French-speaking candidates. The Government of Canada has set a budget of $12.9 million over the next four years to establish the Dieppe centre, with an additional yearly investment of $5.6 million afterwards to ensure the program’s effectiveness.
