Canadian Government Language Resources

Did you know that the Government of Canada and its Translation Bureau provide Canadians with a website with free language resources? The Language Portal of Canada features writing tools, quizzes and links to help citizens improve their English and French.

For example, to verify whether the word “government” needs capitalization or not you can type “government of Canada” into the language navigator to find your answer.

University students may want to know about this one-stop window for their queries because of the site’s collection on academic writing tips.

Click on the “+” next to Writing Tools in the menu bar on the left to discover useful links, such as Writing Tips. Here you can find out about how to write addresses on parcels and the latests Twitter terminology. (Really! You’ll learn that gazouillis is the French equivalent of the word tweet.)
