Consequence of French colonialism in Africa

Consequence of French colonialism in Africa

As a consequence of French colonialism there is a significant number of countries and regions that still use French as an official or administrative language. In North America, the French-speaking minority makes up 82% of the province of Qu├ębec and 30% of the population of New Brunswick. Quebec was a French colony until 1763 when France formally ceded Canada to the British in the Treaty of Paris. In addition, there are French-speaking communities in Louisiana (USA), which was originally part of New France, where many people speak either Cajun French or Louisiana Creole French.
