Volume and number: , 6 Journal: , Minorités linguistiques et société / Linguistic Minorities and Society Abstract Access to French-language health services is a central concern for Francophone minority communities. This article presents an overview of Francophone space in seniors’ group homes in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Ontario as studied in an exploratory research project carried out in 2012. The issue is delineated by means of an analysis of data obtained from seniors, care givers and personnel, an examination of the geographical distribution of both the seniors’ group homes and the population of Francophone seniors, and an overview of the regulatory context. Actions that could improve the situation are also discussed.
