<b><u>Bilingual Meetings</b></u><br>
 
<br>
 
Virtual meetings and teleconferences have been established as the new norm in both the private and public sectors this year. Everything from team meetings to large-scale events moved from auditoriums and meeting rooms to phone lines and cameras.<br>
 
 
<br>
 
<br>
How can we continue to promote, support and encourage the use of both official languages under these circumstances?<br>

There are 2 main types of French spoken in Canada:  Laurentian French and Acadian French. <br>
 
 
<br>
 
<br>
Canadian French contributed to the creation of a unique language: Michif. The Métis people developed this language, which combines features from French and Indigenous languages, primarily Cree. Michif is unusual in that the nouns are generally derived from French and the verbs are derived, for the most part, from Cree.<br>
