STATEMENT: TRANSLATION BUREAU

Mr. Speaker, here is more good news: last week, the Minister of Public Services and Procurement gave the Translation Bureau the respect it deserves.

Following the announcement, Emmanuelle Tremblay, president of the Canadian Association of Professional Employees, said, “On the whole, the minister met our expectations”.

A process is under way to hire a new chief executive officer, whose priorities will be quality, renewal, and recruitment. To ensure quality, the Bureau will be hiring a chief quality officer, and to support recruitment, it will hire 50 students every year, many of them from the co-op program.

This is very good news for official languages in the public service and for Canada.
