[The demographic future of francophones in Montreal island].

[Article in French]



The future development of languages on the island that forms a major part of central urban Montreal, Canada, is reviewed. The author notes that, according to the most recent census, the francophone population of the area was already under 60 percent, and in view of the low fertility of the resident population and probability of large-scale in-migration, this percentage is likely to decline. Finally, he questions assumptions concerning the absorption into the French-speaking population of new migrants whose mother tongue is neither English nor French.
