Council of the Network of Official Languages Champions
Created on August 28, 2003, the Council is a horizontal organization of the Government of Canada within which departments, agencies, Crown corporations and regional federal councils, large and small, all work together. The Council is a valuable resource for the public service of Canada. It provides a voice for the community of official languages champions in departments, agencies, Crown corporations and regional federal councils, which currently includes 215 members. In addition, the Council plays a unique role as a leader and innovator. Its objective is to support and mobilize the community of official languages champions with a view to promoting official languages and helping their deputy heads create a unified vision for official languages and consider official languages in their decision making.
The DARE! OSEZ! website was developed to share best practices and tools to support official languages champions in their role and to help them initiate open dialogue on official languages with employees and amongst colleagues.
