<b> Toolbox for the Official Languages Maturity Model (OLMM) exercise</b><br>
 
<b><i>Do you have tools and best practices to share?</b></i>
 
 
<br>
 
<br>
(Published July 13, 2020)<br>
 
 
<br>
 
<br>
The Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages' Official Languages Maturity Model (OLMM) is a tool that helps federal institutions assess the maturity of their OL practices and processes, identify their strengths and areas of improvement, and chart a path forward. You can learn more about the OLMM <span style="color:#3095B4;"> [https://www.clo-ocol.gc.ca/en/ol-maturity-model here.]</span><br>
 
 
<br>
 
<br>
At the virtual meetings of the advisory committees on official languages held on June 22, 2020, the Canada Revenue Agency and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency were invited to share the experience of an OLMM review, which began in May 2019. This allowed meeting participants to gain insight into the issues and the level of effort required when completing the exercise. <br>

The COVID-19 pandemic abruptly changed the way most public servants work. To help employees cope with the new reality of working remotely, the Government of Canada recently published a series of guidelines ranging from workspace design at home to maintaining well-being, network use, work management, connectivity, linguistic duality and inclusion.  <br>

To support the federal government in its communications on the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the Translation Bureau at Public Services and Procurement Canada has developed a standardized bilingual glossary based on online scientific articles and newspapers as well as Canadian government and World Health Organization documents. The COVID-19 Pandemic Glossary clarifies basic concepts in both official languages and will enable clear communications with the general population. <br>

This exceptional situation brought on by the global pandemic presents challenges at all levels, including in the world of official languages. The various measures taken here and there to counter this scourge may have an impact on your work as the person responsible for official languages. For example, the Public Service Commission's decision to allow assessing second language proficiency are only available for term appointments to bilingual positions that are related to the COVID-19 situation or to ensure the effective functioning of the Government of Canada.
