The 1988 Air Canada Public Participation Act

(1) set out conditions for the privatization of Air Canada. Along with transitional measures leading to Government divestiture, the Act sought to ensure that Air Canada would continue to operate in both French and English by making the newly privatized corporation subject to the Official Languages Act

(2) (the OLA). A further provision required Air Canada to maintain its head office in Montréal, and operational Centres in Winnipeg, Montréal, and Mississauga.
