  11. Um, no. New Brunswick is Canada's only officially bilingual province, with its Official Languages Act (SNB 2002, c O-0.5). Ontario has no official language, but the French Language Services Act (R.S.O. 1990, c. F.32) ensures that provincial government services are offered in French in 26 designated areas across the province with significant numbers of Franco-Ontarian residents, including Toronto. However, it does not define either English or French as "official". French is Quebec's only official language, as defined in its Charter of the French Language (CQLR c C-11), commonly known as "Bill 101".
