Yukon adopts its Languages Act

Yukon’s Languages Act recognizes the status of French and highlights the importance of Aboriginal languages.

Under the Act, the public has the right to receive services in French from any head or central office of a government institution, where there is significant demand or where it is required by the nature of the office. It also gives each person the right to use English, French or a Yukon Aboriginal language in any debates and other proceedings of the Legislative Assembly.
