The City of London is a designated region under the French Language Services Act since 1977 and therefore a diversity of public services is offered in both official languages, in English and in French. We will analyze the current situation about services offered in both official languages and will consult the Francophone and Francophile community to identify unmet needs and priorities to ensure the vitality and the development of all community members, particularly regarding their health, sociocultural activities and professional life.
This initiative covers London, Sarnia and their regions.
Our intention is to reach all Francophones and Francophiles so that they express themselves about their needs, are informed of available services in their language, and take an active part in the community life and in the expansion of public services in French. More than 37 000 Francophones and Francophiles live in London, Sarnia and their regions. It’s now the time to make your voice heard!
Knowing the needs and aspirations of the Francophone community will allow us to develop a community strategic plan for the Francophone community in London, Sarnia and their regions. This forward-looking and shared-objectives plan will aim to create clear pathways towards the creation of a vibrant, active and engaged Francophone and Francophile community.
The community strategic plan will be driven by the Table de concertation Franco-Info London, which brings together the Francophone organizations of London, Sarnia and their regions through an action plan with concrete and structuring goals. This plan will allow for achieved outcomes and support thus ensuring the development of the whole Francophone and Francophile community of London, Sarnia and their regions.
