FRANCOPHONIE AWARD NOMINEES SOUGHT

July 6, 2015

NORTH BAY – Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli is asking constituents to consider nominating
worthy individuals for the 5th edition of the Ontario Francophonie Awards.

Created in 2006, this special recognition program honours citizens who have made
progress possible and played a key role in fostering a stronger Francophone community
in Ontario.

Traditionally awarded every two years, the Ontario Francophonie Awards honour
Francophonie and those who are not Francophone but promote the French language
and culture. The award recognizes those who, in the last five years, have made an
outstanding contribution to the political, social, economic and cultural vitality and well-being
of Ontario’s Francophone community. Since 2010, Ontario also awards a Youth
Francophonie Award.

The deadline for nominations is 5 p.m. July 31, 2015.

Nomination forms can be obtained from MPP Fedeli’s constituency office, or online at
http://www.ofa.gov.on.ca/docs/ofa-prixfranco-form.pdf

The 2015 Ontario Francophonie Awards will be presented on October 23, 2015, to
coincide with the closing weekend of the Celebrations of 400 years of French presence
in Ontario.

“I urge you to put forward the name of a member of our vibrant Francophone community
who you feel is deserving of recognition,” Fedeli said.
