Marshmallows and campfires. Movies and popcorn. Eggs and bacon. Some things are just better together, and it’s the same for French and English. It doesn’t matter what your first language is, linguistic duality is a benefit for all of us. At the heart of our identity and a source of pride, linguistic duality makes Canada… more Canadian.

Linguistic duality is not a synonym for bilingualism! It celebrates both official languages without forcing anyone to become bilingual. Linguistic duality enriches our country, with two official languages accessible to all.
