    Description of Work:

    FCAC encourages financial institutions to communicate in plain language with consumers of financial products. In that spirit, FCAC uses plain language in its own communications with the public. The wider the audience likely to read an FCAC publication (or major segments of it), the greater the need to communicate in clear, simple, engaging terms. This does not mean ‘dumbing down’ documents. Rather, it means structuring and writing content so that it is appealing and easy for the wider target audience to grasp and appreciate.

    The contractor will provide French editing, revision and translation services for a wide variety of communication products, such as but not limited to brochures, fact sheets, backgrounders, news releases, speeches, pamphlets, material for Web sites, communication plans, reports, publications, guides, promotional materials and newsletters on an “as required” basis. This can include technical and financial related documents such as financial statements, business plans, research reports, etc. This work benefits from a solid grasp of financial issues generally, and of FCAC in particular.

    Security Requirement: Common PS SRCL # 9 applies

    Minimum Corporate Security Required: DOS – Reliability with documents safeguarding of up to Protected B

    Minimum Resource Security Required: Reliability
