We are in our fifth year presenting the recognition awards and each year we are impressed by the engagement of the service providers, community organizations and volunteers from the different regions in responding to the needs of Francophones. The choices are becoming more and more difficult to make.
The task of choosing a winner is never easy, especially when we have to choose from an excellent list of candidates. We wish to congratulate all the nominees and their contribution towards improving French language services. Your efforts to improve French language services are appreciated by your community, patients, clients and residents.
This year, we have added a third prize. To recognize the volunteers and community volunteer groups with whom we work, we have added a third category to the recognition awards. This prize recognizes the efforts and engagement of volunteers who have contributed to the vitality of the Francophone community.
