This community study reports on research conducted on the Halifax Francophone community in the fall of 2006 at the initiative of the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages. Part of a broader action-research program on official language community vitality indicators, its objective is to define vitality indicators for this official language community, and to provide the community with the tools to conduct its own evaluation and report on it to governments.

The context of this initiative is described in the following pages (Section 1). An overview of the Halifax Francophone community follows (Section 2), as well as a presentation of the indicators the task force selected (Section 3). There are considerations on the information sources that help verify the indicators (Section 4) and on the capacity building needs for community evaluation (Section 5). Finally, a community evaluation approach is proposed (Section 6).
