2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Official Languages Act in Canada. This is an opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to linguistic duality! Not to mention the history and heritage of Indigenous peoples and their spoken languages.

Linguistic duality

Is...

the coexistence of two majority-language communities, one Francophone and the other Anglophone, which are spread throughout Canada.

a common, unifying and inclusive value.

an open mind, a part of our heritage and our collective life.

Is not...

two solitudes, a withdrawal into oneself, a cultural barrier.

a synonym for mandatory individual bilingualism for every Canadian.

a power struggle between Anglophones and Francophones or less emphasis on minority rights.
