The provincial government has expanded content on the Service NL website for residents of Newfoundland and Labrador for whom French is their first language.
The forms required to apply for driver’s abstracts, marriage certificates and death certificates are now available in French online. Birth certificate applications were made available in French in May 2017.
Recent updates to the website also include the addition of French content related to photo identification, driver licensing and vehicle registration, as well as information about birth, death and marriage certificates.
“The addition of this new French content on the provincial government’s website will help facilitate access to important life event information and application forms,” Christopher Mitchelmore, the minister responsible for Francophone affairs, said in a news release.
“This announcement represents the successful result of a positive, ongoing dialogue between our government and the province’s Francophone and Acadian communities.”
