   Canada’s official languages legislation fundamentally altered the
   composition and operational considerations of federal institutions. With
   legislative change, Canada’s public service has achieved the equitable
   representation of its two official languages groups, provided services to
   the public in both official languages, and has codified rights for public
   servants to work in their official language of choice. On paper, the regime
   is robust. In practice, there is a persistent divergence between policy and
   practice, as English dominates as the regular language of work in the
   federal public service.
