This program has been made possible by the Government of Canada

Bilingualism: c’est payant! funded by Canadian Heritage supports businesses that wish to offer bilingual services and supports businesses in the use of both official languages since 2004. This program was set up to meet the needs of businesses that wish to increase the provision of services in French and English within the greater National Capital region.

The program offers services such as low-cost translation, oral communication workshops in French adapted to the customer service sector as well as recruitment support for bilingual staff.
