Discuss the creation of this language project on this page. Votes will be ignored when judging the proposal. Please provide arguments or reasons and be prepared to defend them (see the Language proposal policy).
Ensure the requested language is sufficiently unique that it could not exist on a more general wiki.
Ensure that there are a sufficient number of native editors of that language to merit an edition in that language.
The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics, recent changes). It is generally considered active if the analysis lists at least three active, not-grayed-out editors listed in the sections for the previous few months.
"Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Default is "no". Preferably, files should be uploaded to Commons.
If you want, you can enable local file uploading, either by any user ("yes") or by administrators only ("admin"). Notes: (1) This setting can be changed afterwards. The setting can only be "yes" or "admin" at approval if the test creates an Exemption Doctrine Policy (EDP) first. (2) Files on Commons can be used on all Wikis. (3) Uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info). (4) Localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons.
The French Canadian community is close to 10 million people. We do understand French speakers from France, but as American English evolve in a different way of English from Britain, the French Canadians speak quite a different French. As well, our references and our culture is dramatically different and a Wikipedia in French Canadians will allow us to express our difference.

But as American English has evolved in a different way than British English, but shared the same Wikis, so shall Canadian French share the same Wikis as French French.--Prosfilaes (talk) 07:19, 4 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]
For the umptiest time: no. Just no. No separate Wikipedias for British, Irish, American, Canadian, Indian, Australian, South African, ... English. No separate Wikipedias for European, Mexican, and South American Spanish. No separate Wikipedias for European and Brazilian Portuguese. No separate Wikipedias for Dutch and Flemish. No separate Wikipedias for German from Germany, Switzerland and Austria. No separate Wikipedias for Romanian and Moldovan. No separate Wikipedias for Swiss and Italian German. No separate Wikipedias for whatever slightly different national standard of the same language. So again: no separate Wikipedias for metropolitan, Belgian, Swiss and Canadian French. How difficult can it be? Steinbach (formerly Caesarion) 16:41, 11 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose. Canadian French is a dialect of the French language. --Agusbou2015 (talk) 17:47, 21 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Samogitian has its own ISO 639-3 code. The dialect / language line is often disputed, but I don't know any claim that Canadian French is an independent language.--Prosfilaes (talk) 23:49, 9 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Well, Samogitian's ISO 639-3 code is bat-smg, which is no different to fr-ca. SHB2000 (talk | contibs) 12:52, 8 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Samogitian's ISO 639-3 code is sgs. bat-smg is an obsolete code used by us, and is not and never was an ISO 639-3 code.--Prosfilaes (talk) 22:27, 8 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes! Wikipedia in French is in the French French speaks by all the Europe. If it was neutral and use a French without anglicismes it will be acceptable. 18.104.22.168 13:32, 4 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I tried to find a test-wiki on this language in Incubator and just didn't. It seems that there is no Canadian French Wikipedia in Incubator. --7elteven (talk) 15:19, 2 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Strong oppose I'm not sure if this is exactly accurate but we don't have a wiki for Brazilian Portuguese, GB/AU/CA/NZ/ZA english since, after all, there is more in common than differences in both pt and en. The only exception there is from what I know is bat-smg.wikipedia and no/nn.wikipedia. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 10:17, 27 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose. Readers benefit from seeing more content in their language, even if it is written in a different dialect. Having a small Wikipedia with a few dozen articles written in Canadian French does not serve the reader as well as as finding ways of better reflecting Canadian French in the existing French Wikipedia. Also, let's not pretend that Québécois French is the same as Acadien French.Ground Zero (talk) 13:21, 22 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
