OTTAWA, Jan. 12, 2016 /CNW/ - The Association des enseignantes et des enseignants franco-ontariens (AEFO) stands with other Francophone organizations that unveiled, last Saturday, a legislative approach to officially recognize Ottawa's bilingual nature.
"The time has come for the City of Ottawa to acknowledge its linguistic duality and become an officially bilingual national capital," stated Carol Jolin, AEFO President. "AEFO encourages the French-speaking community, as well as any organization that supports equal standing of our country's two official languages, to rally behind this initiative," he added.
AEFO congratulates the involved organizations for their collaborative work and their dedication to this project, which will have a positive impact on Ontario's Francophone community.
AEFO has more than 10,000 members and represents French-language elementary and high school teachers in Ontario, from both Catholic and public school boards, and workers from other French-language establishments in Ontario.
