I want to express my thanks to Carl Bouchard for accepting the role of Interim French Language Services Commissioner.
I want to express my thanks to Carl Bouchard for accepting the role of Interim French Language Services Commissioner. Carl's leadership of the French Language Services Unit (FLSU) as Director of Operations over the past three years has contributed largely to its success.
Carl's experience running the day-to-day operations of the FLSU since 2020, overseeing both complaint handling and investigations, means that his transition into the new role will be characterized by stability and consistency.
As Interim Commissioner, Carl will continue to benefit from the passionate support of the entire Ombudsman organization and its unwavering commitment to ensuring that the rights of Francophones in Ontario and the obligations of government and government agencies established by the French Language Services Act are respected and fulfilled.
