Online Charter Series: The Charter’s Lesser-Known Section – Official Languages in the Charter
Section 16 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms sets out that English and French are the official languages of Canada and New Brunswick, having “equality of status” within the respective government institutions. But why does the Charter include official languages? What does “equality of status” mean? What does section 16 do? In this presentation, Professor François Larocque (University of Ottawa) will explore section 16’s background and future.
