After Canada released its newest immigration plan with unprecedented targets for the next three years, Quebec Immigration Minister Christine Frechette stated that the province would not increase immigration levels. On Tuesday, the newly minted immigration minister tweeted in French, “Quebec is now responsible for setting its own targets for permanent immigration.” The maximum number of new permanent residents that Quebec can welcome is 50,000. Frechette stated that the province’s position had remained the same. Quebec needs more control over immigration to protect the French language and culture.
