If the proposed charter is passed in the Quebec assembly, public servants would not be allowed to wear Muslim headscarves, Sikh turbans, Jewish kippas and other "overt" religious symbols, according to a report in The Globe And Mail.
Citing the Leger Marketing Survey report, the newspaper said the proposal has won support of 33 percent people.
However, in the key French-speaking electorates, the plan had the backing of 49 percent of respondents while 34 percent opposed the proposed charter.
Among the English-speaking people, only 15 percent favoured the charter, while 72 percent were against it.
The proposed charter has been seen by many political observers as a tactic targeting French-speaking voters.
