Bilingual Signs to Welcome Visitors at Airport
Prince George, B.C. – New signs at YXS will welcome visitors in both of Canada’s official languages to the upcoming Canada Winter Games.
The project is a partnership between the City of Prince George and the Prince George Airport Authority (PGAA) and has been funded by a grant from the provincial government’s Francophone Affairs Program, Intergovernmental Relations Secretariat.
“Among the thousands of visitors coming to Prince George in the weeks to come will be guests who speak one or both official languages,” says Mayor Lyn Hall. “When we welcome our new friends, it is important that both official languages are represented in our community. I would like to thank the Prince George Airport Authority for their partnership in this endeavor.”
President and CEO of the Prince George Airport Authority, John Gibson says “it’s wonderful to see both of Canada’s official languages on site. This was a great way to partner with the City of Prince George while offering a much needed service to the travelling public.”
The City applied for the grant on behalf of the PGAA and the signs are located throughout the airport terminal building.
