This is a detailed review of the data that is available on the employment status of English speakers in Québec. It reveals that English speakers – who represent 13.8% of Québec’s population and 14.3% of its labour force – face considerable challenges in the labour market. English speakers in most regions of Québec have higher unemployment rates and lower after-tax median incomes compared to French speakers, who represent 85.3% of the population. The report summarizes the data and suggests that programming and policy action must be based on a shared understanding of the employment and socioeconomic challenges facing Québec’s English speakers.
