Nearly 900,000 English Québecers and those speaking a foreign language left the province since 1966, Statistics Canada said yesterday. The migration could have been larger but there were comparatively few English-speaking people in the province to begin with, analysts said.

“We count 672,903 English speakers and 220,448 people who had a non-official language as a mother tongue such as Greek or Italian who left Québec between 1966 and 2021,” analysts said in a statement. The total of 893,351 might have been higher but for the fact “Québec’s English-speaking population is smaller,” it said.
