The city of Montreal has received a certificate of compliance with the French language charter.
Last October, the metropolis was hit on the fingers because it did not comply with 10 of the 19 boroughs.
Today, an extraordinary meeting of the Office Cubacois de la Long Franchise (OQLF) was held, and the City-Center received its certification. We are talking about Ahuntzik-Cartierville, Sud-est East, LaSalle and Riviere-des-Prairies-Point-aux-Trembles burrows.
Saint-Leonard, C కోట్te d’Ivoire, Lachine, PierreFunds-Rocksboro and Saint-Laurent are still waiting for them.
The Mayor of Montreal, Valerie Plante, welcomed the progress. “We are pleased to announce that the city of Montreal and many boroughs have received certification of franchisement from OQLF, a process that our administration has initiated so that the city and all its corporate services are subject to the OQLF rules.
In Quebec, Simon Jolin-Barrett, the minister responsible for the French language, continues to be under pressure. “This is good news, but it still takes 18 years for the city of Montreal to be certified for its franchise certification.
Revision of the forthcoming Bill 101
For more than a year, the government has been promising a major reform of Bill 101. This should be done in the next Parliamentary sessions starting on February 2.
“It will be a strong plan because we must ensure that the French language is protected, that it is valued and, above all, the stability of the French language.
