Important Notice: The Québec government has announced its intention to modify the French Charter in order to better protect the French language in Québec. We do not know precisely when these changes will come into force, nor what they will entail. That said, we know that the Québec government wishes to announce these changes sometime in 2021. As soon as we know more, our firm will issue a publication advising of these changes and their coming into force, and make any necessary amendments to our French Language Requirements in Québec series.
In Part 6 of the “French Language Requirements in Québec” series, we look at the “Recognized Trademark” Exception, to explore the rules governing the display of a “recognized trademark” outside a building.
