On November 30, 2017, the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages held a conference called The future of linguistic duality: Our official languages, our identity, at which nearly 300 participants from across the country helped define the future vision of Canada’s linguistic duality. To thank you for your contribution, we have prepared a short video<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-T9CdXlbiP0> that summarizes the main points of the information collected during the conference.
As the 50th anniversary of the Official Languages Act approaches, my office will be holding on‑line public consultations until May 31, 2018, in order to solicit ideas and opinions on relevant amendments to the Act that we should be taking into account in our review.
To that end, you are invited to complete an on‑line questionnaire on our website<http://www.officiallanguages.gc.ca/en/language-rights/act/public-consultations-modernization>. If you have already shared your opinion with us on the modernization of the Act, I encourage you to forward the link to your colleagues and peers.
Looking forward to hearing your ideas!
