New French language obligations affecting workplaces, business, contracts and more
On June 1, 2022, An Act respecting French, the official and common language of Québec (Bill 96) received royal assent and became law. The Act imposes new French language obligations affecting the language of work, commerce and business, contracts, signs, communications between the Government and businesses, education, the courts, and more. It also paves the way for significant changes to Québec’s Charter of the French Language and other provincial laws, such as the Civil Code of Québec and the Consumer Protection Act.
