Health care is one of the many areas which will be negatively impacted by Bill 96, the Quebec government’s reform of the French language law. “Health and social services in the province are governed by section 15 of the act respecting health and social services that states individuals can receive services in English where resources, personnel and financial capabilities are available,” says Dr. Sandra K. De La Ronde, a QCGN board member. This section, however, is not included in Bill 96.
