Action Plan for Official Languages
The federal Action Plans for Official Languages are five-year strategies that highlight the Government of Canada's priorities for official languages. After a consultation process with communities, the first action plan was implemented in 2003 and the Action Plan for Official Languages 2023-2028: Protection – Promotion – Collaboration is the fifth official languages strategy in 20 years.
The Action Plans identify new and improved measures, the federal partners involved as well as provide a summary of investments. The Action Plans are developed in consultation with official language minority communities, strategic partners and the public. They aim to strengthen the protection and promotion of the official languages within Canadian society and to support the vitality of official language minority communities.
