Title
Ethnicity, Language and Immigration Thematic Series: Health Care Professionals and Official-Language Minorities in Canada, 2001 and 2011
Abstract
According to the authors, in 2011 there were 289,845 health care professionals in Quebec, of which 155,265 or 53.6 percent reported an ability to conduct a conversation in English. Of the total number of health care professionals in the province, 29,640 were Anglophones. The authors found that the ability to conduct a conversation in English varied very little for health care professionals in Quebec between 2001 and 2011, going from 52.8 percent to 53.6 percent. Broken down by health care occupations in the province, the authors report that only 32.1 percent of licensed practical nurses and 34.2 percent of nurse aides reported being able to conduct a conversation in English. In other occupations, 77.7 percent of pharmacists and 89.3 percent of physicians reported being able to conduct a conversation in English. The authors give a breakdown by Quebec regions of health care professionals able to conduct a conversation in English.
