Two commissioners nominated: one for languages and one for lobbyism




Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has nominated an official languages commissioner as well as a lobbying commissioner.

Trudeau’s choice for the languages job is Raymond Theberge, who has been president and vice-chancellor of Universite de Moncton since 2012.

For the lobbying position, Trudeau has gone for Nancy Belanger, who currently has a high-ranking position at the Office of the Information Commissioner of Canada.

Both nominations must be approved by the House of Commons and the Senate.
