MONTREAL, Dec. 12, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The Board of Trade of
Metropolitan Montreal, in collaboration with the Government of Quebec,
presents an enhanced version of the Carrefour francisation portal www.carrefourfrancisation.com, the backbone of the one-stop francization service for companies with
fewer than 50 employees.
"As part of an ongoing effort to improve the business environment in the
metropolitan area, we are pleased to provide companies with a virtual
link where they can find resources that will allow them to improve
their productivity, their customer service, and the integration of
their employees. I encourage business leaders and human resources
managers to go visit our new portal, offering a wealth of information,
which will introduce them to new tools that can help facilitate their
francization efforts," stated Michel Leblanc, President and CEO of the
Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal.
The Board of Trade improved the website to make it more interactive and
to encourage greater participation. Companies can now make a
self-assessment of the state of French usage in their organization and
seek ways to improve it. This is in addition to the support already
being offered by field agents and the resource's telephone line. The
website's overall look was also streamlined in order to make
information easier to understand.
This one-stop service was launched in 2010—as part of the Stratégie commune d'intervention pour Montréal 2008-2013—with the financial support of the Office québécois de la langue
française and the collaboration of the Secrétariat à la politique
linguistique. This initiative brings together all of the tools
available to help facilitate companies' francization efforts. As the
portal is the main component of the one-stop service, it had become
necessary to update it.
"This initiative confirms our determination to support businesses in
their francization efforts. The Board of Trade is taking concrete steps
to allow them to do so in a much easier way through the personalized
support offered via this new web portal," added Michel Leblanc.
The Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal is made up of some 7,000
members. Its mission is to represent the interests of the business
community of Greater Montréal and to provide individuals, merchants,
and local businesses of all sizes with a variety of specialized
services to help them achieve their full potential in terms of
innovation, productivity, and competitiveness. The Board of Trade is
Quebec's leading private economic development organization.
