Official Languages Day: A Spotlight on Official Languages and Linguistic Dynamics

139

Every year on Official Languages Day (formerly known as Linguistic Duality Day) we celebrate Canada’s rich linguistic heritage. This year’s event will focus on the modernization of the Official Languages Act and the current linguistic dynamics in the country.

Open to the general public, this timely event features speakers from government and participants from across Canada who will tell us about the best practices supporting official language minority communities and share cultural activities, informative and entertaining videos, and the discovery of the Mauril app. Participants will learn about the latest developments in the modernization of the Official Languages Act and discover how young people and artists in Canada view our official languages.

This event is being organized jointly with the Council of the Network of Official Languages Champions, in partnership with the Linguistic Duality Network and other associates.
