The Supreme Court of Canada hands down its ruling in the Doucet-Boudreau case

It confirms that the courts must issue effective, responsive remedies that guarantee full and meaningful protection of the rights and freedoms guaranteed under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Through this ruling, the Court emphasized the Government’s obligation to exercise due diligence in matters of education, especially in a context of the progressive erosion of official language minority communities.
