Annual Report 2005-2006

OFFICIAL LANGUAGES IN CANADA:
Taking on the New Challenge


"Last year will be remembered as a turning point for official languages in Canada. The amendments brought to the Official Languages Act in November 2005 do indeed point to the new course the Government of Canada must follow to ensure the vitality of both official language communities and promote our country's linguistic duality. However, implementing these legislative changes is only one aspect of the challenge that now faces the government and the public service in order to mirror the changes in Canadian society over the last decades. In my last annual report as Commissioner, I assess the performance of government institutions and also look at the transformations that will need to occur if Canada is to maintain its course towards the equality of both linguistic communities." Dyane Adam

THE TEXTURE OF CANADA

tissu-pin-iA fabric is woven of many threads. Those of us who speak English and those of us who speak French — ourselves made up of many different elements — have joined together to weave a social fabric called Canada. The golden fabric at the centre of the pin symbolizes the meeting place of our two linguistic communities and the richness of the dialogue between them.

Wearers of the emblem of the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages are signifying their commitment to fostering harmonious human relations between the English-speaking and French-speaking components of Canada’s social fabric.
