uottawa-logoThe University of Ottawa's Official Languages and Bilingualism Institute (OLBI) is a national and international centre of excellence. It was created in 2007 within the Faculty of Arts to pursue and broaden the key role played by the Second Language Institute over the past 40 years. As a leader in the fields of official languages and bilingualism in Canada, OLBI provides an ideal setting for analysis, research and development in the area of official languages, bilingualism and language planning. OLBI stands as an important reference, and its expertise reaches out not only across Canada, but around the world.

Through its Development and Promotion Office, OLBI promotes Canada’s expertise in language teaching and acquisition, in research, in testing and evaluation, and in language planning, both across Canada and abroad. The Office also acts as a broker for Canadian institutions to share best practices across the country and around the world in the area of bilingualism and official languages.
