Resolution #124: Encouraging bilingualism (Official French version)

A government of the Conservative Party of Québec will put in place the following language policy.

The Conservative Party of Québec will:

  • protect Québec’s francophone character, its charm, and French as Québec’s common language, by equipping students of all levels, of all native languages and of all ages with French improvement programs.
  • focus more on attraction to French rather than coercion.
  • offer parents tax credits to offset the costs associated with learning French and English, for their offspring and for themselves.
  • match Québec schools with schools from other Canadian provinces in new immersion programs in partnership.
  • give young people in Québec the taste for learning languages, and will interest young children in bilingualism, first in Canada's two official languages, and then in learning a third language.
  • support Canadian organizations and associations dedicated to the French language and bilingualism throughout Canada and the English language and bilingualism in Québec.
