French-Language Services Annual Report Released

Released on September 14, 2018

Today, the Government of Saskatchewan released its French-language Services Policy Annual Report for 2017-18.  The report outlines the Government of Saskatchewan’s key actions and performance measures taken to meet the goals outlined in the French-language services policy.

“The Government of Saskatchewan recognizes the contribution the Francophone community makes to our province economically, socially and culturally,” Provincial Secretary Nadine Wilson, said.  “It is an essential piece in the fabric of our province, and as such, it’s important to continue to strive to provide French-language services.  This report shows that progress continues to be made.”

Online services expanded in 2017-18.  Additional French-language pages were added to www.saskatchewan.ca/bonjour.  These pages focused on information regarding public safety, including disaster prevention and preparedness for farmers, ranchers, landowners, homeowners and municipalities.  The number of page views for French-language pages also saw a 25 per cent increase from 2016-17.

The “Services en Français en Saskatchewan” also saw an increase in both subscribers and interactions over 2016-17.

Another highlight of 2017-18 came in November 2017 when the Governments of Saskatchewan and Quebec entered into an agreement to support a Francophone co-operation project between the two provinces.
