In this issue

Word of Welcome

The Official Languages Act of 1988 celebrated its 25th anniversary on September 15, 2013. To commemorate the event, the Justice in Official Languages Team of the Official Languages Directorate organized a dialogue between Warren J. Newman and Michel Francoeur. The dialogue took place in Ottawa on January 9, 2014.

In the wake of that event, we invite you to go back in time and recall the important events that led to the enactment of the Official Languages Act of 1988 in a special way, from the unique experience of our colleague, Warren J. Newman. We have also prepared a timeline of linguistic rights key milestones.

In this issue, we also take the opportunity to present our organization's new name, as well as its vision, mission, identity and values. You can also note our new contact information since our move last January.

Lastly, we take a look at a few projects related to justice in official languages recently funded by the Department of Justice Canada. And don't forget to check out the highlighted events and to play the Official Languages Quiz!

Happy reading!

The Justice in Official Languages Team
