French mother-tongue speakers in the province during this same period dropped from 80.9 percent to 79 percent. Within the greater Montreal area (RMR de Montréal), English-speakers dropped from 12.9 to 11.9 percent of the overall population between 1996 and 2006. French speakers during this period in this area dropped from 67.2 to 64.9 percent of the overall population.
