To what extent has the right to be served in French in local health institutions lead to territorial aspirations within the francophone leadership? This paper analyses the interventions by 38 participants in a virtual cartography exercise on the future of health services offered to Franco-Ontarians. As far as health is concerned, the results show that participants were reluctant to construct a distinct francophone territory. Institutions were mentioned but seen only as a distant goal rather than a current concern. The impact of such a response on the future of health services in French is explored.
