As part of the Forum, the Treasury Board Secretariat, in collaboration with the Canada School of Public Service, is organizing a discussion on the topic of language training.
If you are interested in improving, maintaining or acquiring new skills in your second language, this event is not to be missed. Whether you are in the National Capital Region or in the regions, our panelists will introduce you to different language learning mechanisms and approaches that have been implemented in institutions and regions across Canada.
