Sixth Annual International Conference (Toronto, Canada)

The International Association of Language Commissioners is proud to present their VIth Annual International Conference, which is being held on June 26-27, 2019 in Toronto, Canada.

Protecting Linguistic Minorities, Building Stronger Societies

This event will bring together high level representatives from international organizations and state governments as well as language commissioners, ombudsmen, experts and members of community organizations from around the world.

The two-day conference will explore the pivotal role of language ombudsmen in the protection of minority-language communities and as indispensable tools for societal integration, peace building and conflict prevention in multi-ethnic, multi-linguistic societies.

This conference will highlight institutions that promote and protect Indigenous languages in light of the UN’s International Year of Indigenous Languages, as well as focus on the impact of technology on the future of minority language protection worldwide.
