Quotes

“This is a major breakthrough for Franco-Ontarians and French-speaking Canadians across the country! It is the fruit of the hard work of generations of francophones and francophiles brave and dedicated people who fought for that we got away. I would like to thank the student movement and the promoters of this project, Dyane Adam and Carol Jolin. This achievement is the fruit of their work. I am delighted that we have reached today, the date of the 50th anniversary of the official languages Act, an agreement that allows the federal government to help provincial and territorial governments to respond to the needs of official-language minorities across the country. In this day of anniversary, we have one more reason to celebrate. Congratulations to all! “

– The honourable Mélanie Joly, minister of Tourism, the official Languages and the Francophonie,

“We are pleased to announce that Ontario has signed a memorandum of understanding with the federal government to fund the university. It is an important first step. Our government recognizes the exceptional contribution of the francophone community to the social, cultural and economic of the province. We also recognize the importance of a university governed by — and for — francophones in Ontario. We want to make sure that francophone students can count on a postsecondary education system that is modern and of high quality that meets the needs of the labour market. ”

– The honourable Caroline Mulroney, minister of Transport and minister of francophone Affairs, and the honourable Ross Romano, minister of Training, Colleges and Universities
