Title
Language and Earnings in Quebec: Trends Over Twenty Years, 1970-1990
Abstract
Using data from the 1991 census, the authors examine linguistic earning disparities by gender in 1990 Quebec, and compare the results to those obtained from the 1971 and 1981 census data. They find that since the passage of Bill 101 in 1977 the earnings gap between unilingual and bilingual anglophones and bilingual francophones has closed, but the earning situation of allophones, regardless of official language spoken, worsened, as did that of unilingual francophones.
