Title
Langue et immigration, langue du travail : éléments d'analyse
Abstract
According to the author, the language one uses at work in Quebec is a component of the language one uses in public. He points out that according to the 2001 and 2006 censuses, the majority of Francophones (approximately ninety percent) and Anglophones (about seventy percent) work most often in their own language. However, the use of the other language is relatively frequent in the province: over thirty percent of Francophones regularly use English at work, and nearly forty percent of Anglophones regularly speak French. In 2006, Allophones were split between French (forty-eight percent) and English (thirty-eight percent), with fourteen percent of Allophones using both languages. The author concludes that, notwithstanding the Charter of the French Language (Bill 101), Allophones of Latin origin tend to be more predisposed to using French while other Allophone ethnic groups tend to be predisposed to English.
