I would add that we have the support of the Agence universitaire de la Francophonie and of partners in the private sector.
We really want to obtain federal government funding, but our efforts have not worked so far. We think, for example, that the granting councils have a role to play, given that we will be helping them meet their official languages obligations. At present, they do not receive as many applications in French as they would like, because some researchers would like to submit applications in French but can't do so because they are in an anglophone university. We will therefore certainly need funding from the federal government for this service to be able to support all francophone researchers in minority language environments.
