abstract
The 2006 Census data showed that Anglophones, that is the population whose mother tongue is English, made up the majority of the population in Canada, about 57.8%. This was the case for all provinces and territories except Quebec, where the majority of the population reported French as mother tongue. In total, 22.1% of the population in Canada were Francophones, which is the population with French as their mother tongue. Allophones, the population who reported a non-official language as mother tongue, made up 20%.

supplementalInformation
As this map was originally published as an interactive map in the online Atlas of Canada, 6th Edition (1999-2009), it was not intended for high resolution reproduction and therefore does not conform to the standards of cartographic representation and map design found on the Atlas of Canada’s paper reference maps. Map Text (s): Each map published in the online Atlas of Canada, 6th Edition was accompanied by text to describe the map. The map text (s) have been archived in PDF/A and html. Although the design and layout of the text have been modified from the original html, the actual content has been preserved unchanged from the original. In the table of contents of the online 6th Edtion, maps were published within the context of a topic and subtopic. In some cases maps were embedded within a sub-subtopic. These texts have been made available with the map text. The map abstract in the archived map text, will not necessarily match the same text on the archived map as in some cases the abstract has been reworded to apply to an archived map that has been deconstructed from the original by separating out the various map layers of one map into individual maps. Or alternatively, some maps mapped at two base scales (1: 7 500 000 and 1: 1 000 000) have been archived into 2 maps as they would have shown different information (or more detailed information) online at each scale in the original map. The original texts (s) were written for the original map, and not the component maps deconstructed from the original, which is why the title on the archived map text will reference the original map title as published. Animation: All animation(s) referenced in a text are located separately from the text and are identified with the extension '_animation'. To view the animation(s) open in a Web browser. Map Source (s): On some maps the source information is not found on the map, but are only located in the "Map Sources" section of the map text.
