New Recommendations From Francophone Affairs Advisory Committee

Today, Provincial Secretary Nadine Wilson received the Advisory Committee on Francophone Affairs’ latest report for bettering French-language services across government.

As a result of the Advisory Committee’s meetings, the Committee has submitted two additional recommendations.  These recommendations include developing government-wide guidelines for the delivery of French-language services and a communications plan to ensure equal distribution and understanding across government.

“Keeping the French language and culture vibrant is important. I am pleased that the Advisory Committee on Francophone Affairs has submitted additional recommendations to make this possible,” said Wilson.  “I would like to thank the committee for its continued work.”

Since its inception in 2009, the Advisory Committee has met 24 times and submitted 15 reports with recommendations.  Recommendations touch on improving services in areas such as economic development, education, immigration, health, social services, tourism and justice programming for Francophones in our province.

“We are proud of the work done so far by the Government of Saskatchewan,” said Advisory Committee on Francophone Affairs Chair Michel Dubé.  “We’re looking forward to more progress in the future.  It is important that we learn from one another’s successes when supporting the development and vitality of the Fransaskois community.”
