Supporting Your Advocacy Efforts

Did you know that CPF gathers statistics from the Ministries and Departments of Education of every province and territory? Each year, we compile enrolment statistics to provide an overview of FSL education trends across Canada!

Highlights from the 2020-2021 edition:
  • At the national level, enrolment in French immersion remains stable while the overall enrolment in FSL programs fell by one point.-
  • Ontario and New Brunswick are the two provinces that continue to grow consistently in all categories.-
  • British Columbia’s overall enrolment in FSL programs continues to grow steadily.-
  • Core French is the program that showed the most attrition, with a decline in Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan

* CPF publishes the French as a Second Language Enrolment Statistics annually but does not publish same-year statistics as not all ministries are able to finalize data in time for publication.
