Last April, the Fédération des parents welcomed the announcement of the $4.1 billion Action Plan for Official Languages 2023–2028, presented by the Minister responsible for Official Languages, the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor.
These are important investments that will ensure the vitality and sustainability of Francophone communities across the province, particularly through increased funding for community organizations, which play a central role for families.
Part of the funds from the new action plan will be allocated to education, from early childhood to post-secondary. This funding will, among other things, enable school boards and parents’ federations across the country to expand program offerings, develop tools for parents to better support their children, and enrich learning environments to help increase the academic success of young people.
This new funding will also, among other things, provide access to more quality services and programs for Francophone children and their families, as well as the implementation of initiatives specific to Francophone communities, with the aim of improving the provision of child care services and programs that are high quality, affordable, flexible, and inclusive for children and their families.
Details on the allocation of funds will be available in the coming months.
