Title
Comportement linguistique des immigrants allophones et caractéristiques du quartier de résidence, région métropolitaine de recensement de Montréal, 2006
Abstract
Immigrants with a mother tongue other than French or English are likely to face the existing concurrence between these two languages when settling down in the Montreal Census Metropolitan Area (CMA). Using aggregated data from the 2006 Canadian Census, the author studied the potential role of residential linguistic environment on two measures of immigrants' language behavior: language shift at home (from a third language to the use of French or English) and French or English proficiency (of those who did not shift), along with the consideration of their individual caracteristics. He observed the initial links between language composition of the 56 neighborhoods of the CMA and the language behavior of the immigrants. The author found that linear regressions tended to show that language proficiency in French and/or English is not determined by neighborhood caracteristics. However, he argues that evidence suggests that the potential significant role of the language composition of the neighborhood on the language shift at home cannot be overlooked.
