French-language Support for Québec's English-speaking Professionals
French-language barriers can be a challenge for professionals who are English speakers and must practice their profession in accordance with French-language policies. Despite high levels of English-French bilingualism among Québec’s English speakers, French remains a challenge for some who require additional profession-specific French-language training. Not only is French-language proficiency a requirement for membership in Québec’s professional orders, but professionals who do not meet language criteria must also pass a French-language competency exam administered by the Office québécois de la langue française (OQLF). Additionally, professional orders can mandate all their members to take French-language professional competency exams throughout their careers.
