The Linguistic duality

The Network brings together organizations that have linguistic duality at their core. It represents a strong and united voice that highlights the importance of learning and appreciating the culture of the other official language group in Canada. The Network is also focused on promoting the opportunities and connections between anglophone and francophone Canadians.

The Canadian Foundation for Cross-Cultural Dialogue

The Canadian Foundation for Cross-Cultural Dialogue aims to support and promote dialogue between the different components of Canadian society. The Foundation was created in 2004 as a result of the need to promote dialogue between different communities following the publication of the report “Parlons-nous” in 2001 and the pan Canadian tour of the Dialogue working group. Since its beginnings, the Dialogue Foundation has lead numerous projects that have as an objective to promote dialogue between communities across the country such as its annual project: “Les Rendez-vous de la Francophonie”.
