WHAT IS LANGUAGE ADVOCACY DAY?
Inspired by over 40 years of continuous effort by the Joint National Committee for Languages (JNCL), the objective of Canadian Language Advocacy Day (LAD) was to build an informal coalition of language rights advocates, individuals and organizations, who participated in an informational, VIRTUAL advocacy day at Queen's Park on February 4th, 2021.
The long term objective was to establish an ongoing language policy forum and explore the role of language within the context of social justice, education and economic recovery.
As we are transforming and growing into Language Access Coalition of Canada, our task is to connect you with your representatives and language advocates and create briefings and guidance about the process to help you feel confident in pursuing your agenda.

About Language Advocacy Day
Ontario’s existing language service supports are not meeting the needs of our increasingly diverse population. This has been especially apparent during our recent experiences with the COVID-19 pandemic.
