Title
Brief to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Official Languages on the Topic of Bill C-13, An Act to Amend the Official Languages Act, to Enact the Use of French in Federally Regulated Private Businesses Act and to Make Related Amendments to Other Acts
Abstract
The author makes three recommendations with respect to the federal government's proposed amendments to the Official Languages Act. She recommends that all references to the Charter of the French Language (Bill 101) be removed from Bill C-13, and that interpretive language be added to specify that nothing in the revised Official Languages Act diminishes the constitutional or statutory rights and entitlements of linguistic minority communities in each province. She also recommends that Bill C-13 require the federal government to support the heritage and research sectors in addition to other sectors already listed in the Bill.
