Fact Sheet – Identification of Language of Service for Clients of Healthcare Providers

The following two questions are recommended for collecting data on linguistic identity for the purposes of planning and delivering care:

  • What is your mother tongue? (English | French | Other)
  • If your mother tongue is neither French nor English, in which of Canada’s official languages are you most comfortable? (English | French)

Here is a fact sheet that explains how to identify the language of service of your clients and the reasons why we recommend this approach.
