Promotion of Bilingual Services — Promotion of Linguistic Duality

Labour disruptions impact at Canadian Heritage

The Government of Canada and the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) have reached a tentative agreement, ending the strike affecting many public service members. There may still be some service impacts over the next few weeks.

The Promotion of Bilingual Services subcomponent encourages non-governmental organizations – particularly volunteer organizations – to provide services in English and French, and to share their best practices through innovative projects or initiatives.

Priority is given to projects and initiatives that develop delivery models for bilingual services (action plan, policy development, pilot projects in organizations and businesses, feeder projects, mechanisms that can be exported to other organizations, etc.).

Who can apply

  • a Canadian non-profit organization, duly registered;
  • an association or institution.
