Bulletin: Quebec’s Bill 96
Bill 96, or Quebec’s An Act Respecting French came into force in June 2022. It significantly amends the Charter of the French Language (Bill 101).
Bill 96 requires that most government services, except for health care, must be provided in French. Two categories of people will still be entitled to receive service in English or other languages: people who received primary and secondary education in English, and immigrants who have been in Quebec for less than six months. Bill 96, and its predecessor Bill 101, affect, among other things, businesses operating or having employees in Quebec.
