Improving Services For Franco-Ontarian Families

Premier McGuinty Reaffirms Commitment To Francophone Services

TORONTO, Sept. 26, 2011 /CNW/ - Premier Dalton McGuinty outlined improvements made to Francophone services in Ontario while visiting with Le Club Canadien de Toronto today.

"I'm proud of what we've accomplished, together, for Franco-Ontarian families," said McGuinty. "We've shown our firm commitment to Francophone services by creating the Office of the French-Language Services Commissioner to ensure services are available in both of Canada's official languages."

During his visit, McGuinty highlighted a number of improvements made by Ontario Liberals, including:

  • Record investments in French-language education
  • Making TFO an independent agency
  • Implementing the Politique d'aménagement linguistique to enhance the sustainability of Francophone culture in Ontario schools
  • Creating planning entities to support Local Health Integration Networks in their French-language health services planning
  • Saving Montfort Hospital when the last PC government tried to close it — we then doubled its size
  • Creating Franco-Ontarian Day

"It is vital that we maintain and build upon the rich Francophone culture we have in Ontario," said McGuinty. "Moving forward, Ontario Liberals will continue to support Francophone families and the services they receive."

The Hudak PCs have already committed to cutting French-language services. The last NDP government cut the budget of the Office of Francophone Affairs.

Only Ontario Liberals are committed to improving francophone services in the province, including the training of more bilingual health care workers.
