The CCERBAL is the research centre of the Official Languages and Bilingualism Institute (OLBI). We develop and disseminate knowledge, nationally and internationally, in the following research areas:
- language teaching and learning, assessment, and technology;
- linguistic and educational aspects of societal and individual bilingualism and pluri/multilingualism;
- language planning and policy, including family language policy.
The CCERBAL promotes innovation and excellence in research through research chairs, research groups, an academic journal, conferences, symposia, special events, partnerships, and multiple other activities.
We are community-builders and internationally recognized experts, prime consultants in dealing with issues related to language planning and social cohesion. We work with Canadian and international universities, all levels of government agencies, and nongovernmental organizations with interests and responsibilities in bilingualism, official languages, and pluri/multilingualism.
