WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwired - June 13, 2014) - Department of Canadian Heritage

Canadians will now be able to view information on the website of the Long Term and Continuing Care Association of Manitoba in both official languages. Thanks to an investment of $3,200, the English version of the organization's website is to be entirely translated into French. This project will help raise awareness among a greater number of Canadians about the organization's promotional efforts on behalf of senior citizens in Manitoba. Joyce Bateman, Member of Parliament (Winnipeg South Centre), made the announcement today on behalf of the Honourable Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages.
