Official Languages Day

In 2009, the former Clerk of the Privy Council, Wayne G. Wouters, declared the second Thursday in September “Linguistic Duality Day” across the Public Service of Canada. In 2022, it was renamed “Official Languages Day” by the Clerk of the Privy Council, Janice Charette. This day is an opportunity to promote our official languages and celebrate our rich linguistic heritage across the country.

The Council of the Network of Official Languages Champions has partnered with the Linguistic Duality Network, which is made up of Canadian Parents for French, French for the Future and the Canadian Foundation for Cross-Cultural Dialogue, to organize this event so that it can be celebrated beyond the public service throughout Canadian society.
