In Chartier et al. (2012) this measured the percentage of the Francophone Cohort who had one or more visits to a physician with the capacity to offer services in French in a one-year period. This was limited to those who had one or more physician visits. Physicians who self-reported the capacity to offer services in French were identified through publicly available data from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba website. Under the heading language, the presence of any of the following were considered as having the capacity to offer services in French: French, French (some), Some French, Partially fluent French, French (working knowledge), Basic French, Interpreters available for French, or French interpretation available.
