<div style="color:#00000; font-size:medium; background-color:#005172; padding:10px;">'''Is my institution required to complete a Review this year?'''</div>
 
  
There are approximately 200 institutions that are subject to the Official Languages Act. In order to reduce the reporting burden, TBS adopted a three-year cycle. A majority of institutions must submit a review at least once over a three-year cycle. TBS takes into consideration the size, mandate and level of risk in terms of official languages of the institution. Institutions that are required to complete a Review this year will be contacted to attend an information session prior to the exercise’s launch.

<b>2.</b> This first email is immediately followed by a second email to Champions, Persons Responsible for Official Languages and Section 41 Coordinators within your institution. This second email includes the instructions and necessary templates in order to complete the exercise.  <br>

<b>Legislative requirement: The Official Languages Act (OLA)</b><br>

• Allows parliamentarians and the Canadian public to examine the state of official languages within the federal public service.<br>
 
<br>
