Cameroonians in France consist of migrants from Cameroon and their descendants living and working in France.

History[edit]

The first Cameroonians immigrants in France came in the 1970s, like the Congolese, some years after the first immigrant wave from Black Africa (Senegal Valley) in France.[1] But this immigration has speed up in the 1980s (because of the social and economic crisis in Cameroon)[2] to become one of the most populous group of immigrants from Black Africa in France.
