About 25% of Canadians are francophone; however, they are concentrated in Québec. Outside of Québec, only 4% of Canadians speak French as a native language. French is studied less and less as a second language, and those who learned it in high school don't tend to remember it. 17.4% of Canadians are bilingual.
Immigrants to Québec are more likely to use or choose French as their primary language, while immigrants to other provinces tend to favor English. Yet for the first time, the number of Francophones in Montréal dropped to less than 50%.
