Paquet, Roseline G.; Levasseur, Catherine – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2019
Montreal, the largest city in the province of Quebec, Canada, is where most newcomers settle down.

Forrest, James; Dandy, Justine – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2018
Much is known about immigrants' majority language proficiency in the first (immigrant) generation.

Caglitutuncigil, Tulay – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2018
