Government of Canada announces funding as part of the Canada–Quebec Accord

February 8, 2024—Ottawa—The Government of Canada values its close working relationship with the Government of Quebec, a bilateral relationship that has allowed us to mutually support Quebecers over many immigration-related objectives.

The Honourable Marc Miller, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, announced today that the Government of Canada will be providing funding to Quebec for fiscal year 2023–2024 as part of its annual grant to the Government of Quebec under the Canada–Quebec Accord relating to Immigration. This grant covers costs for settlement services and the linguistic, cultural and economic integration of newcomers. 

The funding reflects the commitment to maintaining a fair and equitable partnership between the federal government and the Government of Quebec. For fiscal year 2023–2024, Quebec can expect to receive a total of $775.1 million, which includes an indexation payment of $48.3 million. 

Since 2015, the Government of Canada has allocated $4.4 billion to Quebec under the Accord. Including fiscal year 2023–2024, Quebec will have been allocated a total of $5.2 billion.
