Abstract
This report examines the basic structure of the Department of National Defence and Canadian Forces Official Languages (OL) Model, the linguistic designation of units, and their recommended ratios of anglophones and francophones. The impact of aligning the units' designation with the requirements of the 1988 OL Act is analysed. One option is retained as a good alternative to the current situation because it satisfies three important criteria in the language designation of a unit: the role and function of the unit as long as it is for an operational requirement, the respect of unilingual/bilingual regions, and the opportunity for members of the regular force of working in their first official language. This option is easier to implement than maintaining the status quo.
