Albertans can help deliver on the province’s first French Policy by applying to join the new Alberta Advisory Council on the Francophonie.
Alberta's government is asking residents to help deliver on the province’s first French Policy by applying to join the new Alberta Advisory Council on the Francophonie. The council will advise the Minister of Culture and Tourism on the implementation of Alberta’s French Policy. The council will help ensure the francophone community is represented and that French-speaking Albertans have a voice in the policy’s ongoing implementation. The French Policy, announced last June, outlines the guiding principles the province will use to help maintain existing and develop new French-language services and supports. For more information and to apply to become a member of the Alberta Advisory Council on the Francophonie, go to www.boards.alberta.ca. The deadline for application is Feb. 28, 2018. The council will have 10 members, drawn from a cross-section of people who can represent the diversity and vitality of Alberta’s francophone community. The council will be in place by fall 2018. - Pat Siedlecki
