Canadian Language Advocacy Day (LAD):


Inspired by over 40 years of continuous effort by the Joint National Committee for Languages (JNCL), the objective of Canadian Language Advocacy Day (LAD) is to build an informal coalition of language rights advocates, individuals and organizations who will participate in an informational, virtual advocacy day at Queen's Park on February 4th, 2021. The long-term objective is to establish an ongoing language policy forum and explore the role of language within the context of social justice, education and economic recovery.
 
Join for an exciting day of virtual engagement exploring the power of language and the importance of language services to the well-being of all Canadians.
 
This virtual day includes:

  • In-depth panel conversations exploring the impact of language policies (the Canadian LANGUAGE RIGHTS CONFERENCE), including Reflections on the Indigenous Languages Act, Pandemic Communication and Language Gaps and Re-imagining Language Services Design
  • The OUR LANGUAGE RIGHTS Film FESTIVAL, a curated schedule of short and long National Film Board documentaries as well as videos and TedTalks exploring language inter-sectionality
  • Facilitated breakout rooms for those interested in networking and/or collaboration opportunities to meet and discuss language-related projects (VIDEO)

Join on February 4, 2021 at 9:00 AM.
 
Register soon because space is limited. Hope you’ll be able to make it!

some confusion Jan 24

I got lost in the links. Above all, I tried to find out if this was "Canadian". Following links within links, I ended up at Capitol Hill and the US. Is this international? American? i.e. language issues would be different in different countries.
