505 _a"This book is the first in-depth study of the implementation of the policy in the federal public service from 1967 to 2013 in the National Capital Region. Its analysis of language policy confronting actors, ideas, and institutions explains the state of the language of work in the public service today. Canada's official languages legislation fundamentally altered the composition and operational considerations of federal institutions.
505 _aThrough an historical institutionalist lens based on extensive archival research and semi-structured interviews, Gaspard shows that the implementation of official languages policy in the federal public service could not challenge the predominance of English as the operating language. What emerges is a picture of a lack of structural change, inadequate managerial engagement, and a false sense that both official languages are equally ingrained.
505 _aThis is an incisive, original, and deeply honest study of a defining characteristic in Canada's public service. A must read for all engaged with the federal public service and interested in official languages policy in general." (Book Cover)
