A mainly bilingual Pontiac region
The charming accent that you hear is Mélanie’s; soft and warm, it sounds exactly like that of Pontiac Francophones. Since 52% of Pontiac residents are bilingual, 42% are Anglophones, and 6% are unilingual Francophones, English and French are vibrant and naturally interconnected. In a French province, this contrast makes our region unique and gives it colour. Our neighbours in Ontario, many of whom are European immigrants,share their language as well as a part of their heritage.
