Statement from the Commissioner of Official Languages for New Brunswick regarding the launch of the New Brunswick Government two-year official languages plan

Fredericton, December 2, 2011 - “For many years, I have been recommending that the provincial government adopt an official languages plan to ensure that provincial departments comply fully with their linguistic obligations. I am pleased to see it becoming a reality through this two-year official languages plan. I thank the previous government for initiating this project and I congratulate Premier David Alward for proceeding with it. I believe this plan will make it possible to renew the momentum towards linguistic equality. Strong leadership from government and senior civil service is now essential for this plan to succeed. We will follow its implementation closely.”
