Abstract: This paper investigates the men wage difference amongst Anglophones, Francophones and Allophones in the region of Ottawa-Gatineau, Montreal and Quebec. We use for data the 2006 Public Use Microdata Files on Individuals (PUMFI) from Statistics Canada. Thereby the statistical technique employed is the ordinary least squares analysis and also the instrumental variables method. For this purpose we used the logarithm annual wage of 2005 as dependant variable and the mother tongue, the home language, the language of work for linguistic independent variables. The results show that the wages gap between Francophones and Anglophones are not important but benefit in general Anglophones. Also we found that the biggest difference between linguistic variables is when we consider the language of work variable.
