Objectives

As an ambassador, you play an important role in promoting and creating our language resources:

  • You help us promote our content
  • You tell us what kind of content you want and need
  • You share your stories about how our resources have helped you
  • You uncover online treasures for us to publish

Ultimately, we want to build a large, active and representative community to make sure we are offering you what you need.

Together, we can help Canadians communicate effectively—in both official languages.

It's easy to become an ambassador! If you're interested, contact the Language Portal of Canada.
