The Attorney General for Ontario and Minister of Francophone Affairs, Caroline Mulroney, attended at Weaver Simmons, at its Sudbury office to meet with representative of The Association des juristes d’expression française de l’Ontario (AJEFO) to discuss instituting a new program in Sudbury designed to increase access to justice in the French language.
Minister Mulroney was in Sudbury to make an announcement regarding a program that will be implemented at the Sudbury Courthouse for access to justice in the French language. The initial pilot project was put in place in Ottawa in 2017. Minister Mulroney has chosen Sudbury to be the second Courthouse to have the program.
Daniel Sirois, partner at Weaver Simmons and member of AJEFO, stated that he was “honoured to have the Attorney General present to discuss the acute need for French language services in the Court proceedings and pleased to find out the Sudbury had been chosen as the second location to institute this program”.
