Resolution #112: Rights, freedom and secularity (Official French version)

The Charter of Rights and Freedoms contains principles that must guide our practices. Individual freedoms and a secular state will be respected. During the selection process, would-be immigrants will be informed of this reality. Common sense and the desire to live together will guide us in the application of these laws and regulations and to resolve individual cases. Our core values will be respected and the problems will not be magnified for political or ideological reasons. We recognize that integration is not a one-way street but requires an effort by all. Patience, education, empathy and respect are watchwords for the reception and integration of new Quebecers. However, there is no reason for us to encourage radical fundamentalism and we will therefore ensure that those who hold those views are not subsidized nor are they asked to be involved in the integration of new immigrants.
