"We are very honoured to be invited to this prestigious panel alongside the Honourable Marie-France Lalonde. Groupe Média TFO, strengthened by its three pillars: digital technologies, education and the Francophonie, represents an added value for Ontario, participating in the province's cultural, linguistic and economic influence.
