Yukon Francophone School Board v. Attorney General of the Yukon Territory

Case # 35823
Yukon Francophone School Board, Education Area #23 v. Attorney General of the Yukon Territory. (January 21, 2015)

The commission scolaire francophone du yukon (“CSFY”) is the only school board in the Yukon territory. The commission operates the only french-language school in Yukon, École Émilie-Tremblay in Whitehorse. The CSFY brought an action against the Yukon Government, alleging that it had breached its obligations under section 23 of the Charter. The CSFY claimed territory had violated the Yukon Languages Act. The CSFY also claimed the government reallocated funds away from french-language education to french-as-a-second-language education.
