ATINS members honored!


The Commission nationale des parents francophones has awarded its annual Plaque for outstanding contribution to ATINS in recognition of the work of nine ATINS members who helped translate material into English to support a court case. The Fédération des parents acadiens de la Nouvelle-Écosse (Nova Scotia Federation of Acadian Parents) filed a suit against the Conseil scolaire acadien provincial (Acadian school board) in order to maintain the implementation schedule for homogeneous French language schools. There was considerable translation work involved - some 200,000 words.
