ABSTRACT
In addition to the fundamental recognition of language rights, Ontario's francophone community needs institutions to foster its vitality and development. Most researchers in the field of community vitality generally acknowledge that there are a few critical factors, such as the number of Francophones and the language they speak at home, at school, at play and at work. Two other elements are also essential according to the experts: public recognition of the language and institutional support for the community and its members.
