Ontario’s three main parties have made statements regarding Ontario’s Francophonie

Ottawa, May 24, 2018 – The Assemblée de la francophonie de l’Ontario (AFO) recently asked Premier of Ontario candidates from the Liberal Party, Progressive Conservative Party and New Democratic Party to fill out a survey regarding their positions on francophone issues. Their responses have been received and are now available on the AFO’s website.

The candidates were given just over three weeks to respond to 14 questions, which addressed issues such as the Université de l’Ontario francais, the improvement of French-language government services and provincial bilingualism.

The Assemblée de la francophonie de l’Ontario, the uniting organization and the political voice of Francophonie in Ontario, conducts this survey during every general election.

“We are happy to say that, for the first time, all three parties have completed our survey. It is crucial for Franco-Ontarians to understand the positions of potential Premiers of Ontario regarding francophone issues. The survey is part of a larger campaign to raise awareness called #MonVoteFranco that the AFO launched a few days ago,” said Carol Jolin, President of the AFO.
