City: , Moncton Publishing Company: , Canadian Institute for Research on Linguistic Minorities Abstract This project follows up on another one we conducted for the Consortium national de formation en santé (CNFS) in 2006 and constitutes an update based on the 2006 census data. The project originates from a concern expressed by the CNFS and several researchers around how Francophones living in minority situations are to be defined and their demographic weight quantified for research and health care delivery purposes. The Commission conjointe de recherche sur la santé des francophones en situation minoritaire then recommended undertaking a process to examine this issue.

The objective is to foster and clarify reflection on the statistical methods used in major surveys as well as services and organizations to define “Francophone living in a minority situation” and to present different processes and their impacts all as the basis for proposing solutions.
