The Language Portal of Canada is an initiative funded by the Roadmap for Canada's Official Languages 2013-2018: Education, Immigration, Communities.
A showcase for Canadian expertise in the area of language, the Language Portal of Canada gives you access to Canadian resources that deal with various aspects of language and that will help you communicate effectively in English and French. The Language Portal offers:
Our main goals are:
NOTE: The Language Portal of Canada has a parallel French language site—Le Portail linguistique du Canada. While these Internet sites follow the Official Languages Act wherever possible, their content is not identical. Both sites, however, have the same objective of promoting the use of Canada's official languages, English and French.
The Translation Bureau, a special operating agency of Public Works and Government Services Canada, has created the Language Portal of Canada and is responsible for its development and management. The Translation Bureau thus supports the Government of Canada in its efforts to provide products and services that help Canadians communicate in both official languages.
Selected hyperlinks lead to sites, tools or publications that have been designed, created or published by Canadians.
The sites listed may be bilingual or unilingual (that is, they have content in one or both official languages, or in an Aboriginal language).
The Language Portal is updated weekly. Click on What's New? to see our most recent additions to the site.
