Using data from the 2011 National Household Survey and the 2001 Census of the population, this study provides a portrait of health care professionals who offered or were able to offer services to the official minority-language population.
By comparing 2001 and 2011, one can see that the total number of official-language minority health care professionals increased, as did those who reported having the ability to conduct a conversation in the minority language and those who used that language at work.
The study "Health care professionals and official-language minorities in Canada, 2001 and 2011" is now available as part of the Ethnicity, Language and Immigration Thematic Series (89-657-X).
