One year after the adoption of Bill 96, which amended the Charter of the French Language, questions remain as to how municipalities should implement certain measures. The speakers will present the clarifications brought about by the Regulation respecting the language of the civil administration and the Language Policy of the State, as well as share their thoughts and insights on certain grey areas. This course is designed specifically for the people in charge of implementing French language requirements in municipalities recognized under section 29.1 of the Charter.
We are pleased to offer this course at a reduced rate thanks to funding by the Secrétariat aux relations avec les Québécois d’expression anglaise.
