University of Ottawa/Institut du Savoir Montfort Joint Chair on the Health of Francophones in Ontario

Established in 2019, the Chair on the Health of Francophones in Ontario aims to consolidate knowledge about the living conditions of Francophones in minority settings, their health status, their experiences with language barriers and services, and the organizational capacity to offer services in French.

Research program

The research program helps better identify socio-territorial inequalities in health; determine service needs; identify vulnerable sub-groups; estimate and improve health-care systems’ capacity to meet the needs of these populations; document the impact of language barriers on safety and quality of care; and support the training of a new generation of researchers studying the health of Francophones in minority settings.
