A Naturally Bilingual Nation

Canada is a very multilingual country and this is reflected in its vibrant population and cultural history. The official languages are English and French, and although English is more widely spoken, all official and government services must be available to the public in both languages. 

Both languages are widely spoken and understood, with 60% of the population native English speakers, and almost 25% native French speakers.

French Canadians are passionate about maintaining the language’s status in Canadian culture. The majority of French speakers reside in the provinces of Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick, and the language has developed as a dialect that is unique in its vocabulary and pronunciation from its European counterpart. Canadian English, on the other hand, is a distinctive transitional point between British and American English, with style, spelling and dialect all of its own.

Outside of French and English, 20% of the population is native in other languages.

The most common non-official languages in Canada are Cantonese, Mandarin, Italian, German, Punjabi and Spanish. In fact, over 140 spoken languages have been identified in the average Canadian city, making translation services in Canada vital to maintaining clear communications in business.

This linguistic divide and very unique language history provides a high need for translation services in Canada to achieve cross-cultural success.
