Learn French in 6 months? Quebec commissioned report that shows why that’s nearly impossible

Not a good look when reports are buried or hidden. Governments, of course, have no obligation to accept report findings:

A report commissioned by the Quebec government — and then kept hidden — lays out in detail why many newcomers are likely to require more than six months to learn French, contrary to new rules put forward in the province’s updated language law.

The study was ordered by the province’s Immigration Ministry in 2019 and presented in April 2021, a month before the Coalition Avenir Québec government introduced Bill 96.

It was never made public, and was obtained by CBC News under access-to-information legislation.
