Francophone Diversity

A population born elsewhere...

Eight out of ten Francophones residing in Nunavut were born outside the territory. Almost all come from other provinces of Canada, with immigrants comprising only 6.5% of the territory's Francophone population.


The Francophone residents of Nunavut come mostly from Quebec but also from other regions of the country. The Francophone community is thus drawn from diverse sources that are mainly native to Canada, which has an effect on the sense of belonging and identity.

… And supplied mostly by Quebec


The inflow of migrants adding to Nunavut's Francophone community comes almost totally from Quebec. Few European immigrants venture into the Arctic, with the result that reception infrastructures for immigrants are practically non-existent.
