Quebec Prime Minister François Legault, with the support of his cabinet, intends to pass new laws to support the wider use of the French language, as the province has a long history of French-speaking residents. One of the planned measures is to limit the use of the English language in government agencies, private enterprises, schools, and other places. The Office of the French Language of the Province of Quebec (OQLF) conducted a study in March 2021 that showed that in the coming years, the population of the province will increasingly tend to speak English, to the detriment of the French.
