Report on French-Language Services Policy Received

Released on March 23, 2018

Provincial Secretary Nadine Wilson has received the Advisory Committee on Francophone Affairs’ latest report on the implementation of the Government of Saskatchewan’s French-Language Services Policy.

“This report shows that there has been progress made in offering services in French to the people of Saskatchewan, but more importantly, it outlines how the Government of Saskatchewan is continually making an effort to improve access to French-language services,” Wilson said.  “I want to extend my thanks to the Advisory Committee and to those who met with them for this important look at access to French-language services in Saskatchewan.”

The Advisory Committee met with officials from 22 ministries, Crown corporations and agencies to determine best practices within the Government of Saskatchewan, as well as identify opportunities for improving access to French-language services.

“The Advisory Committee found that improvements have been made to increase online content in French, and ministries, Crowns and agencies show a willingness to work together on the application of the French-Language Services Policy,” Advisory Committee on Francophone Affairs Chair Michel Dubé said.

The report outlines recommendations that have been put to the Government of Saskatchewan in previous reports as ways to improve the implementation of the French-Language Services Policy.  For example, the report recommends all ministries designate “champions” to increase awareness of the policy and its goals, as well as act as a liaison between their ministry and the Francophone Affairs Branch.

While some ministries and agencies already have active champions, the report recommends all ministries, Crowns, and agencies adopt the practice.  The French-Language Services Policy was adopted by the Government of Saskatchewan in 2003.
