Official Languages—Modernization of ActPublished on 15 June 2017 Hansard and Statements by Senator Claudette Tardif (retired)
Hon. Claudette Tardif:
My question is for the Leader of the Government in the Senate. In his 2016-17 annual report, the Commissioner of Official Languages made only one recommendation. As the 50th anniversary of the Official Languages Act approaches, the Commissioner of Official Languages recommended that the Prime Minister, the President of the Treasury Board, the Minister of Canadian Heritage and the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada assess the relevance of updating the act, with a view to establishing a clear position in 2019. Leader, does the government intend to adopt and implement that recommendation?
