UOttawa, USudbury partner to increase access to French-language programs


The Université de Sudbury, University of Ottawa, and the Assemblée de la francophonie de l’Ontario are working together to bring more French-language programming to northeastern Ontario. Starting in September 2025, the partners will bring a variety of new Francophone programs—which will be determined in the coming months—to the region. USudbury President Serge Miville praised the partnership as “an innovative approach that serves as a model for achieving economies of scale and increasing the viability of the sector across French Ontario.” The partnership is reportedly an important step in USudbury’s progress toward compliance with its designation under the French Language Services Act.
