At Champlain Township’s most recent meeting, council approved a resolution demanding that the Ontario government reverse its decision to cut francophone services. The resolution is asking the provincial government to reverse its decision to transfer the French-language services commissioner’s mandate to the Ontario Ombudsman and that it reinstate the French Language Services Commissioner as it was before.

The resolution also demands that the province reinstate funding for a French-language university in Ontario and that it restore funding cuts to Francophone projects.

The resolution stated that the request was being made by Champlain Township, which is a bilingual community and stated that the township was disappointed that the province had cut francophone services in light of the fact that francophones receive limited services in the first place.
