Ottawa – March 28, 2018 – The Quebec Community Groups Network is looking forward to greater support from the federal government following the release of the Action Plan for Official Languages 2018-2023: Investing in our Future.
The plan, which includes $500 million in new spending for Official Language Minority Communities, was unveiled in Ottawa Wednesday by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Canadian Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly. These measures bring the total investment to $2.7 billion – the largest-ever commitment to official languages.
“Over the past several years, English-speaking Quebec has invested a great deal of time communicating its needs to the federal government,” said QCGN President James Shea. “With the release of the Government of Canada’s Action Plan, it is clear we have been listened to.”
