Here are the main points of the bill.
The notwithstanding clause
Among the most contentious points of the bill is that it sets aside basic rights of equality guaranteed in the charters of rights and freedoms of both Canada and Quebec, which means that those who feel their rights are infringed will not be able to use the overridden articles of the charter to challenge it.
Immigrants have six months to learn French
The law states that agencies of the government can provide services in a language other than French to immigrants coming to Quebec, but only for the first six months after their arrival.
Services in English will be restricted to those who are eligible to attend English school in the province, or to those who attended English school in Canada outside Quebec.
