Honourable Mention: “Getting Your Ontario Driver’s Licence” Video Series

In an effort to rethink the way that it serves the needs of young drivers, the Ministry of Transportation produced a series of four videos entitled “Getting Your Ontario Driver’s Licence.” These videos, available on YouTube, explain the different requirements of each level of graduated licensing, and effectively offer the information in a more appealing way for those who prefer videos to reading plain text. Over 40 Francophone public service volunteers and road safety partners were part of the collaboration effort to produce the video series, and they certainly had a significant impact on the quality and diversity of these products, as they are well adapted to the needs of a growing young Francophone audience.

With more than half of all new drivers being 25 years or under, developing these online products was a logical way to enhance our young drivers’ level of understanding, not to mention an effective way to cater to the technophile generation! Well done!

The Honourable Mentions Series is a series of 15 blog posts that the Commissioner is releasing to individually highlight initiatives by government ministries and agencies that demonstrate efforts to expand the delivery of high-quality French-language services, as listed in his 2012-2013 Annual Report. The full list of honourable mentions and the relevant blog posts are available here.
