Graham Fraser

Workshop description

How much do you really know about how Canada got to be a bilingual country? How did bilingualism become an official policy? What were the major tensions and obstacles along the way? And what are the major challenges that this policy faces today?

In this two-day workshop, Graham Fraser, Canada's current Commissioner of Official Languages will provide you with detailed and fascinating insights about Canada's bilingualism policy.

This workshop will also explore how this policy contends with challenges, such as diversity and the social media.
