Welcome to the website of the Canadian Language Museum. The Organizing Committee for the Canadian Language Museum was formed on May 29, 2011 at the annual meeting of the Canadian Linguistics Association. Please see our draft Mission Statement below.
Language is central to the cultural identity of every Canadian and has been integral in shaping Canada's development. Few countries can match Canada's rich and varied language heritage, which includes the official languages of French and English and their regional dialects, aboriginal languages from coast to coast and the many languages brought to this country by more recent immigrants.
