The Diversity of French Expatriates’ Migration Projects in Quebec: a Typology in Four Dynamic Portraits

Authors: Danièle Bélanger ; Cécile Lefèvre ; Charles Fleury

Based on a qualitative study conducted between 2016 and 2018 among thirty French people who migrated to Quebec, this article proposes to distinguish four types of migration projects: the exploration, settlement, circulation and return projects. The trajectories and narratives collected show that these projects are not mutually exclusive or fixed in time, but that there is a fluidity between them, which moreover do not always correspond to the administrative categories of migration statuses in Canadian immigration policy.
