Yukon French education case continues
Whitehorse, February 20, 2014 - It is with regret that the Association franco-yukonnaise (AFY) learned of the Yukon Court of Appeals' February 11 decision on the dispute between the Commission scolaire francophone du Yukon (CSFY, "Yukon Francophone School Board") and the Government of Yukon. This decision cancels the ruling made by the Yukon Supreme Court on July 26, 2011 in favour of the CSFY on almost all the issues in dispute.
Whereupon the CSFY announced, on February, its intention to take the Appeals Court decision to the Supreme Court of Canada.
"The AFY will continue to work collaboratively with the CSFY to ensure that Yukon children receive a quality education in French," said AFY president Angélique Bernard. The AFY appreciates the openness the Department of Education has shown over the past year and hopes that the good relations between the Government and the CSFY continue for the well-being of the children enrolled at École Émilie-Tremblay and Académie Parhélie."
Official voice and leader in the development of the Yukon French-speaking community since 1982, AFY aims to improve the quality of life of Yukon Francophones.
