Bonjour! Awards promote French-language Services
People from across the Public Service are looking for new ways to make French-language services more accessible to the Acadian and francophone community. This month, there is an opportunity to honour someone in the Nova Scotia Government who puts in the extra work to make services available in French.
The Bonjour! Awards are government’s way of thanking the people that work on the front line or behind the scenes to improve existing services in French and to develop new ones.
Last year, recipients were recognized for delivering high-quality services in French at the Nova Scotia Archives, developing a bilingual birth registration kiosk, and for co-ordinating the publication of French content on the Department of Justice website.
Now, for the sixth year, the Acadian Affairs division of the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage is asking Nova Scotians to nominate a provincial government employee or team for exemplary work bringing services in French to the Acadian and francophone community. The Bonjour! Awards are presented in three categories: leadership; services to the public; and program development.
Nominations are open until October 31st.
