Finally, there is the issue of whether the federal government remains committed to the ideal of a single bilingual community in Canada. In 2003, the federal Liberal government, helmed by Jean Chrétien, released an action plan on bilingualism titled The Next Act: New Momentum for Canada’s Linguistic Duality. In that plan, the federal government reaffirmed its commitment to a common bilingual community in Canada, and to promoting bilingualism and equality between French and English in the public service, education, and minority language communities. The federal government also committed more than $750 million over five years in support of the action plan and its initiatives.
