2001

In the Charlebois case, the New Brunswick Court of Appeal declares that New Brunswick municipalities are subject to the language obligations set out in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

Further to this ruling, the New Brunswick government would undertake a review of the province’s Official Languages Act.

The changes resulting from this review, including the creation of the position of Commissioner of Official Languages for New Brunswick, went much further than what was ordered by the New Brunswick Court of Appeal.
