The purpose of this Act is to affirm that the only official language of Québec is French. It also affirms that French is the common language of the Québec nation. The Act introduces new fundamental language rights, including the right to French language learning services. It also recognizes the enforceable nature of each of the fundamental language rights provided for by the Charter of the French language.
The Act proposes several amendments with regard to French as the language of work. For instance, it sets out the obligations applicable to employers to ensure that the workers’ right to carry on their activities in French is respected. Every employee is granted the right to a work environment free of discrimination or harassment related to the use of French or to claiming a right arising from the Charter of the French language. Employers are required to take all reasonable means to avoid requiring a person to have knowledge of a language other than French to obtain or keep a position.
