Quebec is raising on-the-job lessons fund by $450,000 as it aims to ensure people just entering the province can effortlessly relate and transact in French. Having recorded significant successes in its on-the-job courses which is a part of its multimillion dollars efforts to make immigrants fluent French speakers - a program called “la francisation”, the government of Quebec made the announcement to expand the program in the province. The program, operated by Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal, which started with only 30 migrants in 2016 is expected to have at least 500 participants in 2019 fiscal year. Over the years, Quebec's “francisation” programs have been greatly criticized with many tagging it inefficient but the introduction of free courses has been a timely antidote as it offers measurable results. Since the program began, records have shown that at least 80 percent of the participants advanced by a minimum of one level of French at the end of their three-month session.
