The Commissioner of Yukon, Angélique Bernard, has been named one of the 10 most influential personalities in the Canadian Francophone community outside of Quebec. The individuals who are being recognized have worked hard to promote the French language and culture in Canada. The list was compiled by print and radio journalists from Canada’s French-speaking community outside of Quebec.
Madam Bernard is being recognized for her efforts to support the Francophonie throughout the Yukon territory. “Since Angélique Bernard was appointed Commissioner of Yukon in 2018, French has become much more prevalent at the Office of the Commissioner. She is an admirable influence for the Francophonie,” stated the jury. The jury consists of the panel in charge of selecting the 10 personalities on the list.
