Graham Fraser Canada’s Commissioner
of Official Languages

What is language policy and why does Canada have one? How was it developed? What were the major obstacles and tensions along the way? What is the relationship between Canadian language policy and Quebec language policy? What are the major challenges for language policy 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.
