Part-time French courses

Learn French in just a few hours a week! Several institutions offer part-time French courses.

Since July 1, 2019:

  • Immigrants taking a part-time French course are entitled to financial assistance of $15 per day of training, a first!
  • They can also receive an allowance for child care, which has been increased from $7 to $9 per day of training, per child or dependent person.
  • Temporary workers, foreign students, as well as their spouse, are now eligible for part-time French courses as well as the accompanying financial assistance. Prior to this, individuals who were temporarily residing in Québec did not have access to in-class French courses offered by the Government of Québec. Read the notice for individuals temporarily residing in Québec.

Notice for individuals temporarily residing in Québec:
An immigrant holding a work or study permit must respect the conditions related to their status. If the registration for a full-time French course does not conform to these conditions, the immigrant could lose their temporary resident status. Failure to respect the conditions of their stay could also lead to a refusal of the next application to stay in Québec or elsewhere in Canada. It is the immigrant’s responsibility to know the conditions related to their status and respect them. For more information, contact Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
