The Future of Linguistic Duality
OLBI participated in the Conference of the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages of Canada entitled The Future of Linguistic Duality: Our Official Languages, Our Identity. Its purpose was to bring together several stakeholders from across Canada to discuss the definition and the future of linguistic duality in Canada. The conference was held in 6 cities simultaneously (Winnipeg, Edmonton, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and Moncton) and gathered more than 300 participants.
"Among the themes covered, the Interim Commissioner of Official Languages of Canada cites the demographic changes and their impact on linguistic duality, as well as the means to advance linguistic duality while showing openness and inclusiveness towards other languages and cultures in Canada.” Translated from French - Radio Canada
