Nickel Belt MPP France Gélinas wants the government to make sure the French accents are included on all documents and cards issued by the government of Ontario.

France Gélinas has started a petition to allow Ontarians to have their exact name on government issued cards such as their health cards or their drivers’ license.

The Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Transportation have confirmed that presently the province of Ontario’s computer systems does not allow the recording of accented letters.

The petition request that the French accents be included on all documents and cards issued by the government of Ontario on or before Dec. 31, 2020.
