The Government of Manitoba creates the French Language Services Secretariat

The Secretariat facilitates, guides and monitors all government department activity concerning French-language services.

It serves as a liaison between the Manitoba government and French-speaking organizations in the province.

The Secretariat advises the Government of Manitoba, and the Minister responsible for Francophone Affairs in particular, on the development of government services in the French language and on matters relating to the French Language Services Policy.

In 2006, the Secretariat celebrated its 25th anniversary with a change in name to the Francophone Affairs Secretariat.
