ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of analyzing Francophone immigration from a sociolinguistic perspective. It identifies some issues related to language and establishes a connection between the reception structures that admit newcomers and the concept of language planning. It likewise presents arguments that are based on a new Francophone reception centre in Moncton which is the Centre d'accueil et d'intégration des immigrants du Moncton Métropolitain. Moreover, it states that cultural diversity and the advancement of French internationally are integral parts of the Francophone space.
