@95K5YQGfrom British Columbia  answered…3mos

It would help them, as the majority of Canadians do speak English, but we also need to embrace diversity and other cultures, because it helps make us more tolerant of one another, and gives us a greater understanding of what other cultures of the world are like.

@959RRDQfrom Ontario  answered…3mos

It should be encouraged because being multi lingual is good in Canada but at the same time we should still embrace the diversity immigrants add to our country

@94C42JLfrom British Columbia  answered…4mos

It helps to be able to speak English in our nation, but we should also embrace cultural diversity and languages that immigrants bring, as we are a mosaic of many different cultures and it helps us become more tolerant of others.

@94B8ZS9Liberalfrom Ontario  answered…4mos

That or French. To be honest though, I don't see how an immigrant could live in this country for any amount of time and not eventually learn either English or French. I don't believe there needs to be any compulsion from the government, they will just learn the language(s) naturally in order to get by.

@945C4M2from British Columbia  answered…4mos

Yes, it would help but we should also embrace different cultures and languages that make us more tolerant and knowledgeable.

Yes, but we should also embrace the diversity of languages and culture that immigrants bring. It does wonders in making us a more tolerant and less-divisive society.

@93CSFRDNew Democraticfrom Alberta  answered…6mos

No. However we should increase accessibility to those who seek it

@9397NT2from Ontario  answered…6mos

Yes, but English AND French are the foundations of communication in Canada, an immigrant should learn these languages to create social cohesion and stronger connection outside of ethnoburbs

No, immigrants should choose whether they want to learn English OR Not, and for those that do, the government should provide them with free language learning courses, but Personally, we should embrace the diversity that immigrants add to our country.
