ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the immigration of French-Canadians in Toronto and Ottawa, Ontario and the efforts of the federal government to promote the vitality of minority language communities. It states that Francophone communities often struggle to stop the decline of the French language. It therefore considers immigration as an important part in the expansion of Francophone communities in Canada's largest metropolitan areas. Moreover, it notes that immigration is capable of diffusing the French language into culturally diverse entities where the degree of rootedness is a less defining feature.
