To mark the 50th anniversary of the Official Languages Act, the Association for Canadian Studies, the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages and Canadian Parents for French will host a conference bringing together Canadians to exchange ideas on how the two official languages have shaped Canada's historic narrative and the current challenges encountered by educators in fostering linguistic duality within the context of increasing diversity and multiple identities. The conference will take place November 21-23, 2019 at the Palais des congrès de Gatineau, 50, Maisonneuve Blvd, Gatineau, Quebec and at the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel & conference Center, 35 Laurier Street, Gatineau, Quebec.
