Standing Committee on Official Languages (LANG)

This week the committee continued its Evaluation of the Roadmap: Improving Programs and Service Distribution. Tuesday, committee members had a quick vote to pass their annual budget before hearing testimonies from Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration. Thursday the committee listened to testimonies from representatives of the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages. As with previous witnesses, the representatives made short presentations on initiatives to protect official languages in minority situations. Often these included meeting with community and business leaders and providing support for minority official language communities.
