The chapter is divided in three parts. The first describes the history of the main elements of the federal language policies then turns to the aggregate costs and benefits of the federal official language policy. The second presents the methodology used to allocate the benefits of the availability of French language services and their tax costs to households. The third presents the distribution for the population divided into ten deciles (income based) of the benefits and tax costs of OLA services linked to transfers to individuals and other services. The results combine information for 2001 and 2006 given the availability of data.
