Canadian Centre for Linguistic Rights.

The Canadian Centre for Linguistic Rights was established at the Faculty of Law of the University of Ottawa to centralize intellectual dialogue and research efforts from across Canada and beyond, in order to avoid duplication and to stimulate research that will advance the legal status of linguistic rights. The Centre’s more specific mandate is to collect as much national and international documentation as possible on linguistic rights, to promote better knowledge of linguistic and cultural issues, to create a network of resource persons in these fields, to facilitate contacts between these people, to encourage research in linguistic law and to undertake activities to make people aware of linguistic rights that could promote future interaction. Its activities include the hosting of conferences and the publication of a bulletin.
