  • The Official Languages Act requires that some Canadian public institutions offer services in both official languages. In the absence of this Act, would government agencies still offer French-language services to French-speakers living in a minority community? To answer this question, the author studied two police forces, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Edmonton Police Service (EPS). The former is subject to the Official Languages Act, the latter is not. After presenting the organizational structures of the two forces, the author establishes some comparison points based on interviews conducted with members of the two organizations. An analysis of the participants’ responses allows the author to draw conclusions that will help improve French-language services in minority communities.
