The MISC is pleased to host this public event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the launch of the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism.   It will be open to the public and media and simultaneous interpretation will be provided.  This event is being held in partnership with the University of Ottawa and the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages.

While there are several events across Canada acknowledging the anniversary of the Commission, most of them have looked back at its history.  We intend for our event to look forward, asking, “Does bilingualism have a future in Canada?” 

Participants include Warren Allmand, Fabienne Colas, Pierre Curzi, Stéphane Dion, Ellen Gabriel, Graham Fraser, Catherine Leclerc, Sherry Simon, and Bernard St-Laurent.
