Each year, Canada celebrates Francophone Immigration Week during the first week of November. It is an opportunity to celebrate and to reflect on the contributions that French speaking immigrants make to the growth and prosperity of our country.
This year the Réseau du Nord with its partners – the Société économique de l’Ontario (SÉO), l’Association francophone du Nord-Ouest de l’Ontario (AFNOO), le Centre francophone à Thunder Bay, and the Northwestern Ontario Local Immigration Partnership (LIP) – would like to recognize employers in the region for their part in supporting and promoting Francophone immigration to Northwestern Ontario. We would also like to recognize Francophone immigrant newcomers who have settled in the region and have actively become involved in their new Francophone community.
The three awards that have been created are:
