Happy 10th Anniversary, Linguistic Duality Day!

Happy 10th anniversary, Linguistic Duality Day!


2019 is a year of celebration! We are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Official Languages Act and the 10th anniversary of Linguistic Duality Day.

To mark these important milestones, we are offering a most interesting program: discussion on linguistic insecurity and language of work, the launch of the Official Languages Hub (which will consolidate the official languages resources of federal institutions on the Language Portal of Canada) and the presentation of the Excellence and Leadership in Official Languages Awards.

Don't miss this special event!
