I live in Canada. BC specifically. French is around, but is certainly nowhere near as prominent as Eastern Canada, where you see a lot more of it as you head east of BC, until you hit Quebec.

While I will recognize that, yes, French is indeed an official language, it is not spoken here, at least in the Fraser Valley (Vancouver) as much as say, many other languages, such as variants of the Chinese, Japanese, etc.

Anyone may correct me, I'm open to hear if I'm wrong. I'd rather know the right than be ignorant and be in the wrong here.

English is spoken by 83 per cent of British Columbians, but B.C. is home to many other languages as well. Chinese, Panjabi (Punjabi), Korean, Tagalog (Pilipino, Filipino) and Persian (Farsi) are the most common languages spoken in B.C. after English.

French ain't even mentionned in the most spoken languages. How do you want it to be in the official languages of this province?

''Canada has two official languages: English and French. People who immigrate to B.C. do not need to understand French. However, you should be able to speak, read and write in English if you plan to live, work or study in British Columbia.
English is the main language of communication in British Columbia''
