Moroccans in France are people of Moroccan descent living in France. People of Moroccan origin account for a large sector of the total immigrant population in France. Following France's colonial rule in Morocco from 1912 to 1956, many Moroccans chose to immigrate to France from the 1960s to the present due to France's favorable economic conditions.


The 2011 Census recorded 433,026 Moroccan-born people.[4]
