we have the right to speak english

In Canada we have 2 official languages.

We need to maintain equality and promote bilingual businesses.

english is disapearing from our local businesses

Many businesses are acting like Bill 96 and Bill C-32 are already passed. They are removing their bilingual signs and replacing them with unilingual French ones.

THIS IS NOT OK

It’s time to remind these businesses that we are their customers and that we deserve respect.

"If you're trying to persuade people to do something or buy something it seems to me you should use their language, the language they use every day, the language in which they think.”"

59% of Montrealers speak both English and French

The majority of Quebec may be French but there are many pockets of English speaking communities in and around Montreal, the Eastern Townships, and the Ontario border. Many of these communities have been here for generations.

10% of Montrealers speak only English

While bilingualism has been pushed in English schools since the 70's there are still many who rely only speak English. If you only have French signs you are deliberately excluding a portion of your customer base.

In 2019, Montréal welcomed 11.1 million tourists

While 51% of tourists were from Quebec, 14% were from overseas, 15% from the USA, and 20% from the rest of Canada. English speaking tourists make up almost half of our visitors.

Locally run businesses pay attention to customer feedback

While big corporations may not care about your opinion, small and locally run businesses do. They often have ties to the community and genuinely care about their customers.
