We present a comparative analysis of the Canadian approach to health for Francophone minority communities (FMCs), showing that the Canadian government has favoured an approach of cooperation with community stakeholders. Our comparative analysis has allowed us to identify a typology of linguistic policies for FMCs in the field of health. This typology situates the Canadian experience in relation to others that are sometimes similar but alternative, as seen in the Finnish, Belgian and American cases. The Canadian way seems original in that it seems to be somewhere between a community model, like the European countries, and an individual model that follows the American example.
