140. If the Office considers, after examining the analysis of the enterprise’s linguistic situation, that the use of French is generalized at all levels of the enterprise according to the terms of section 141, it shall issue a francization certificate.
If, however, the Office considers that the use of French is not generalized at all levels of the enterprise, it shall notify the enterprise that it must adopt a francization program. In the case of an enterprise to which section 139 applies, the Office may, in addition, order the establishment of a francization committee of four or six members; in that case, sections 136 to 138 are applicable with the necessary modifications.
The francization program shall be submitted to the Office within six months of the date on which the notice is received. The program requires the approval of the Office.
