Signage for a heritage site in Kelowna will now be written in English and French.
The Father Pandosy Mission Society received funding under the 2013-18 Canada-British Columbia Official Language Agreement on French Language Services. This money will be used to translate promotional material for the Father Pandosy mission heritage site.
“These changes will make the site more user-friendly for the Francophone tourist and local community visitors, and will place the mission in the spotlight of a broader national and international world tourism stage,” Patrick Walls, president of the Pandosy Mission Committee, said.
Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick officially unveiled one of many signs that include French now on Friday morning in Kelowna.
“Sharing the history of the Father Pandosy Mission and other heritage sites in B.C. in our country’s other official language opens up more of this province’s rich history for people to enjoy and to enrich themselves.”
