Table 4: Response to Parliamentary Committees and External Audits
Standing Senate Committee on Official Languages
In its May 2007 report on the relocation of head offices, the Standing Senate Committee on Official Languages asked the Commissioner of Official Languages to study horizontal management of official languages and make recommendations.
- The Commissioner charged an expert in this field, Donald J. Savoie, with the mandate of assessing the current official languages management structure in the federal administration and provide advice with regard to coordination. In March 2008, Professor Savoie submitted his practical advice and guidance on the horizontal management of official languages to the Commissioner of
Official Languages. The Commissioner has relied primarily on Professor Savoie's work to take stock of horizontal governance in his 2007-2008 Annual Report. The Commissioner also made three recommendations for improving horizontal management of official languages.
- Professor Savoie’s report was tabled before this parliamentary committee on June 9, 2008.
