Best Practices Forum on Official Languages: Official Languages in Evolution


As part of the Best Practices Forum on Official Languages, Canadian Heritage and the Canada School of Public Service are bringing together public service executives to discuss Canada's two official languages.

In this session, speakers will address a range of official-languages issues, including diversity and inclusion in the public service, the Clerk's Call to Action on Anti-Racism, Equity, and Inclusion in the Federal Public Service, and the role of young public servants in maintaining official languages.

The Best Practices Forum on Official Languages will be held virtually from February 7 to 11, 2022. It brings together official languages champions with persons responsible for official languages and those responsible for coordinating section 41 of the Official Languages Act. All public service employees are welcome to attend.
