McGill probed by OQLF over alleged lack of French in employee communications


McGill University is reportedly being probed by the Office québécois de la langue française (OQLF) over a complaint about English-language communications at the university. The complainant stated that certain departments at McGill communicated to employees solely in English on several occasions, which would be a violation of Quebec’s French Language Charter. “The Office has contacted McGill University regarding the situation reported in the complaint received. The file is currently being processed,” stated McGill Spokesperson Chantal Bouchard. The university also reportedly circulated a message to its internal staff after hearing from OQLF, reminding them of the legislative obligations and launching a process to ensure materials such as the university’s website are in compliance with the charter.
