    Language of work

    The tables present data on languages used at work, which come from Statistics Canada’s population censuses. Languages used most often at work are presented by industry, immigration status, and language spoken most often at home. Some tables provide a picture of the situation in 2021, while others show its evolution since 2011. Data are available for Québec as a whole or for census metropolitan areas (CMAs) and non-CMA areas. The Montréal CMA is divided in two: the Montréal Island and off-island suburbs.

    These data help monitor the demolinguistic situation in Québec. Reports by the Office québécois de la langue française also look at how the situation is evolving.

    Additional census data on various linguistic aspects are available on Statistics Canada’s website and on the Institut de la statistique du Québec’s website.
