At the annual meeting of the French Sector in September 2018, the Catholic Bishops of Canada of the Latin Rite decided that, as of the first Sunday of Advent (2 December 2018), the new French translation of the Our Father will officially replace the old version in all its public liturgical form. More specifically, the wording "Ne nous laisse pas entrer en tentation", will replace the current text "Ne nous soumets pas à la tentation" which has been in use across Canada since 1966.
