Christine Frechette has been appointed as the new Quebec Immigration Minister
In the aftermath of the Coalition Avenir Quebec’s (CAQ) resounding electoral victory, a former president of the Chambre de Commerce de l’Est de Montréal, Christine Frechette, has been appointed immigration minister. She will replace Boulet, Minister of Labour – whom she was performing alongside as an immigration minister – despite making controversial statements during the campaign. In the weeks leading up to the election, Boulet voiced his anti-immigrant opinions during a debate, claiming that “eighty percent of immigrants go to Montreal and do not work or learn French or integrate into Quebec society.”
