You wish to learn French? You speak some French, but wish to improve your level? CANA can help you.

CANA understands that learning French is a key factor in the integration of newcomers who want to settle in Quebec.

We are therefore committed to your integration by offering francization courses.

French is the official language of Quebec. Learning French will help you adapt to your new job and your daily life (grocery shopping, interacting and meeting people, taking part in cultural activities, sports etc.)

In collaboration with the Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration (MIFI), CANA offers free, part-time, in-person French courses. These courses are delivered by MIFI teachers in an educational and fun environment.

Students can receive :

Financial assistance per school day
Reimbursement of childcare fees per school day

CANA provides limited childcare drop-in spaces for children who do not have childcare services.

After passing each level, you receive a MIFI certificate. This document can serve as proof of language proficiency for your permanent residence and/or Canadian citizenship application.
