116. The departments and agencies of the civil administration may establish linguistic committees and determine their composition and operation.
The committees shall identify terminological deficiencies and problematical terms and expressions in their designated field. They shall submit the terms and expressions they favour to the Comité d’officialisation linguistique. The Comité may in turn submit them to the Office québécois de la langue française for standardization or recommendation.
If a department or agency does not establish a linguistic committee, the Office may, on the proposal of the Comité d’officialisation linguistique, make an official request that it do so.
