FRANCOPHONE ADVISORY COMMITTEE’S REPORT ON TOURISM, CULTURE AND SPORT RECEIVED

The Advisory Committee on Francophone Affairs’ report on tourism, culture and sport has been received by Provincial Secretary Wayne Elhard.

“I’d like to thank this committee once again for their work on their ninth report,” Elhard said.  “Culture has always been at the heart of the Fransaskois community’s vitality and we appreciate the insight of this report.”

The nine recommendations in the latest report are to help improve access to services in French in the areas of tourism, culture and sport.  The report follows meetings by the Francophone Advisory Committee with officials from the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport, the Provincial Capital Commission, Tourism Saskatchewan, the Saskatchewan Arts Board, along with various francophone organizations.

The Advisory Committee on Francophone Affairs was created in 2009 to advise the Provincial Secretary, whose duties include French-language services, on the implementation of the provincial government’s French-language services policy.

Providing services in French allows the provincial government to help meet the needs of citizens, while continuing to attract to Saskatchewan French-speaking newcomers from around the world to contribute to the growth of our province.
