So wouldn't websites fall under that cetegory, assuming they are for a busness like a developer?
What has been hinted at as new language legislation involves the internal operations of businesses with less than 50 employees. Currently at less than 50 employees you can operate your business in English (and compel your employees to use that language in their internal communications). The law would change that around and compel them to use French instead, or at least more French I guess.
I don't believe any changes to signage laws are in the cards.
As for websites, I have never heard of Quebec government or the OQLF telling people they couldn't have English on their websites. What they get on people's cases about is if they have *English only* websites.
