The Official Languages and Bilingualism Institute (OLBI) of the University of Ottawa is proud to announce that Dr. Sylvie A. Lamoureux, Associate Professor, has been appointed to the Order of Ontario.
A dedicated teacher, researcher and spokesperson for French language education in Ontario, Dr. Lamoureux has devoted her career to promoting conditions that ensure success for young Francophones throughout the province. Her research shows the weight of linguistic insecurity among Francophone students in Ontario during their postsecondary experiences.
In 2010, she helped the University of Ottawa to establish a student mentorship program pairing new Francophone students with former French students-speaking from the same region to help them find their place and maintain their own culture and their identity.
It is a fitting tribute since she was nominated by graduates of the Faculties of Arts, Education and Social Sciences of the University of Ottawa.
Information on the new appointees to the Order of Ontario is available on the Government of Ontario website.
