Title
Report of the Commission of Inquiry on the Position of the French Language and on Language Rights in Quebec
Abstract
The Commission d'enquête sur la situation de la langue française et sur les droits linguistiques au Québec, usually referred to as the Commission Gendron, was established in 1968 by the Union Nationale government in response to language conflicts within Montreal's Catholic school board in Saint-Léonard. It found that even if French was not about to disappear among Francophones, it was not the predominant language in the Quebec labour market. It also found that non-Francophone immigrants to Quebec preferred to send their children to English-language schools.
