Public Consultations on the Review of the Official Languages (Communications with and Services to the Public) Regulations

Current status: Closed

These online public consultations were held from to .

The Government of Canada, through the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat, has launched public consultations as part of the process to review the Official Languages (Communications with and Services to the Public) Regulations. This review was announced on by the Honorable Scott Brison, President of the Treasury Board of Canada, with the support of the Honorable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage.

The context in which the Government of Canada is called upon to implement the Official Languages Regulations has changed since the Regulations were introduced in 1991. After more than 25 years of implementation, a review is timely as Canadian society has evolved and major technological changes have occurred. The public is invited to take part in this review and to express its views and opinions on the federal government’s communications and service delivery in both official languages.
