La franca estas la dua plej ofta lingvo en [[Kanado]], post la [[Angla lingvo|angla]], kaj ambaŭ estas oficialaj lingvoj je federacia nivelo. Ĝi estas la unua lingvo de 9.5 milionoj da personoj aŭ 29% kaj la dua lingvo por 2.07 milionoj aŭ 6% de la tuta loĝantaro de Kanado.<ref name="Qu'est-ce que la Francophonie"/> La franca estas la nura oficiala lingvo en la provinco [[Kebekio]], estante gepatra lingvo de ĉirkaŭ 7 milionoj da personoj, aŭ preskaŭ 80% (Popolnombrado de 2006) de la provinco.

French is also an official language of all of the territories ([[NorthwestNordokcidentaj TerritoriesTeritorioj]], [[NunavutNunavuto]], and [[YukonJukonio]]). Out of the three, Yukon has the most French speakers, comprising just under 4% of the population.<ref>{{cite web|url= |title=Detailed Mother Tongue (186), Knowledge of Official Languages (5), Age Groups (17A) and Sex (3) (2006 Census) | |date=December 7, 2010 |accessdate=February 22, 2011}}</ref> Furthermore, while French is not an official language in [[Ontario]], the [[French Language Services Act]] ensures that provincial services are to be available in the language. The Act applies to areas of the province where there are significant Francophone communities, namely [[Eastern Ontario]] and [[Northern Ontario]]. Elsewhere, sizable French-speaking minorities are found in southern Manitoba, [[Nova Scotia]], [[Prince Edward Island]] and the [[Port au Port Peninsula]] in [[Newfoundland and Labrador]], where the unique [[Newfoundland French]] dialect was historically spoken. Smaller pockets of French speakers exist in all other provinces. The city of Ottawa, the Canadian capital, is also effectively bilingual, as it is on the other side of a river from Quebec, opposite the major city of Gatineau, and is required to offer governmental services in French as well as English.{{Citation needed|date=March 2015}}

French remains the second most-spoken language in the states of [[Louisiana]], [[Maine]], [[Vermont]] and [[New Hampshire]]. Louisiana is home to many distinct dialects, collectively known as [[Louisiana French]]. According to the 2000 United States Census, there are over 194,000 people in Louisiana who speak French at home, the most of any state if [[Louisiana Creole French|Creole French]] is excluded.<ref name="">[ U.S. Census Bureau, Census 2000 Summary File 3] – Language Spoken at Home: 2000.</ref> [[New England French]], essentially a variant of [[Canadian French]], is spoken in parts of [[New England]].
