Investing nearly $4 million to support 21 organizations working with New Brunswick’s official-language minority community
NEW BRUNSWICK, March 15, 2022
The Government of Canada understands the crucial role played by organizations working to protect our two official languages across the country. They not only provide essential support to official-language minority communities, but also help promote our linguistic duality to ensure a promising future for generations to come.
Today, the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Official Languages and Minister responsible for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, announced nearly $4 million in funding for 21 Francophone organizations in New Brunswick. Provided through the Development of Official-Language Communities Program, this important financial support will enable organizations to continue to operate, as well as promote the dynamism and vitality of official-language minority communities.
The federal government will remain an ally of these official language organizations that do such important work. Thanks to them, Canadians will continue to grow, learn and dream in the language of their choice.

“As someone who grew up in Moncton, I know how important it is to support organizations working in official-language minority communities. Today’s investment will allow organizations in New Brunswick to pursue their activities and ensure the vitality of Francophone communities in our beautiful region. When it comes to protecting and promoting our two official languages, our government will always be there”
—The Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Official Languages and Minister responsible for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency
The Official Languages Support Programs represent the largest federal investment in official languages. These include the Development of Official-Language Communities Program and the Enhancement of Official Languages Program.
The Government of Canada is providing this funding under the Development of Official-Language Communities Program (Community Life component, Cooperation with the Community Sector sub-component). This program enhances the vitality of Canada’s English- and French-speaking minority communities and supports their development.
On March 1, 2022, the Government of Canada introduced an improved bill for substantive equality between Canada’s official languages to better reflect a changing society. This bill aims to address the decline of French in Canada, to clarify and strengthen the part of the Official Languages Act concerning the promotion of official languages, and to support minority communities.
