QCGN supports review on language of work in federal regulated workplaces
For Immediate Release
Montreal, November 25, 2011 – The Quebec Community Groups Network supports the Government of Canada’s creation of a consultative committee to review the situation regarding language of work in federally regulated businesses in Quebec.
Industry Minister Christian Paradis this week announced the consultative committee will seek the views of stakeholders to examine whether employees of federally regulated businesses in Quebec are fully able to work in French. The QCGN notes the Government of Canada’s obligations to both official languages, and believes the committee’s work should not be geographically limited.
