Canada is officially a bilingual country, speaking both English and French. New Brunswick is the only official bilingual province, and Quebec has declared itself officially unilingual (French only).
Other languages officially recognized in some provinces in Canada are Inuktitut in Nunavut and eight indigenous languages in the Northwest Territories which are: Chipewyan, Cree, Gqich’in, Inuinnaqtun, Inuvialuktun, North Slavey, South Slavey, and Tłįchǫ.
Because of Canada’s bilingual languages, “all mandatory information on food labels must be shown in both official languages, i.e., French and English” (CFIA) and every governmental institute must offer bilingual service.
Here are a few examples of labels on the food we buy from our grocery store. It would be very helpful tool if we were learning French.
(The opposite side of the cereal box is in English).
