La communication interculturelle dans le cadre de la promotion de l'immigration des ressortissants français au Québec

Abstract : Every year since the early 2000s, about 3,500 French citizens settled in Quebec under a permanent resident visa. The French citizens are immigrants of choice for Quebec, since their income revenues are in fact higher than the national average income, and they also benefit, since 2008, from a greater recognition of their diplomas obtained in France. In fact, French candidates seem to gather all the conditions to settle and integrate in a sustainable manner in the “Belle Province”. However, the studied phenomenon - namely the return in France of the French immigrants - is not so new. Indeed, in 2013 according to the Ministry of Immigration and Cultural Communities, France is the leading country of birth for recent immigrants (economical sector) in admissions. Nevertheless, French immigrants are also the most likely to return to France or to continue on their migration route. The communication and intercultural relations during the pre-migratory phase can influence the future immigrants to either settle temporarily or permanently. But how can this intercultural communication influence future immigrants about their desire to migrate, prepare their migration plans, and their integration? What may be the influence of this intercultural communication within the integration process and the development of a sense of belonging towards the host society? The progressive construction of the Promised Land and the migration imaginary also determine either the success or failure of immigration
