About the Office québécois de la langue française (OQLF)

In 1974, the Quebec government made French the only official language of Quebec. The Charter of the French language, adopted in 1977 by the National Assembly, strengthens the status of this language as well as its presence and use in the public space. The Charter revolves around thirteen regulations, which clarify the scope of its various measures. While ensuring that French is the common language of Quebecers in the public sphere, it does not exclude the presence of other languages, except in rare cases.

The Office québécois de la langue française is a public body whose mission is set out in the Charter and its regulations. It ensures that French is the normal and usual language of work, communications, commerce and business in a spirit of justice and openness.
