    City: , Moncton Publishing Company: , Canadian Institute for Research on Linguistic Minorities Abstract Compilation and analysis of provincial and territorial actions in the area of official languages were thus required. It was necessary first to identify the nature of these actions and compile a list of them, and second to assess them critically. We then proposed a few immediate and long-term projections.

    The research covered nine sectors of activity: 1) public communications and services, 2) early childhood development, 3) health and well-being, 4) justice, 5) arts and culture, 6) economic development, 7) target groups (youth, seniors, and women), 8) immigration and 9) municipalities. Primary and secondary education was not included as it has already been the focus of a number of studies.23 These nine sectors coincide with the main sectors outlined in the federal government’s Action Plan for Official Languages. We also looked at the administrative structures created by the provinces and territories to organize these sectors, as well as the ways in which the provinces and territories cooperated with each other, and with the federal government.
