What We Do
National contact Points
The ECML has put in place a network of national contacts to coordinate the spread of information and documentation related to the ECML, its activities and the results of its projects to institutions, associations, and experts working in the language teaching field, and to anyone else interested. Each member state has a page on the ECML website in order to represent itself. The site is run by the ECML, but the content is the responsibility of the member states.
Because of the protocol of cooperation and liaison between the ECML and the University of Ottawa, The Institute of Official Languages and Bilingualism (ILOB) acts as the national contact for Canada. In this context, the ECML has allowed Canada to have a page on its website, as the member states do, to disseminate information and documentation related to language teaching in Canada.
This initiative of a “Canadian site” is still very new and must be considered “in development.” The information found there was suggested to the ECML through close collaboration with the management of CASLT. I encourage you to consult the site and to provide comments and suggestions to help us keep it up-to-date and relevant. The site has the potential to become a good showcase for Canada for the benefit of our colleagues in the Council of Europe and the European Centre for Modern Languages.
