Bill 96 sparked intense debates across Quebec, dividing public opinion in the province. Proponents of the bill argued that it would help protect French culture and language. Opponents, meanwhile, argued that the legislation was discriminatory and would limit the rights of immigrants.

In particular, businesses must now ensure they meet the thresholds of francophone hires required by the new law.
