Reaching your target market in La belle province
Doing business in Quebec gives you access to more than a quarter of Canada’s population. Adapting your company’s corporate message to the Quebec culture and becoming aware of linguistic nuances will give you a distinct competitive advantage.
While translation is not always straightforward, it is definitely worthwhile. The Office québécois de la langue française (OQLF), the government agency that enforces Quebec’s language legislation, will give your company the information it needs to comply with current regulations.
The so-called “francization” of the workplace applies to all companies who have 50 employees or more for six consecutive months, except those whose work comes under federal jurisdiction. The goal is to ensure that all business activity within the company is conducted in French. For more information, go to http://www.oqlf.gouv.qc.ca/english/infoguides/index.html
