SFU’s French department is partnering with the Canada School of Public Service to provide access for Canadian university students to the CSPS’s online second-language training products. The three-year pilot program "will benefit all SFU students who wish to acquire, maintain or develop their official languages skills as an asset for career opportunities and advancement in the public—and private—sectors," says French department chair Réjean Canac-Marquis. A recent House of Commons report notes that a quarter of all public-sector workers will be eligible to retire by 2012 and the government will need to recruit 5,000 to 6,000 bilingual employees annually over the next several years.
