Affiliated with OLBI’s Canadian Centre for Studies and Research on Bilingualism and Language Planning (CCERBAL), the Language Management Interdisciplinary Research Group (GRIGL) is a platform for exchanges on language policy and planning. It’s a space for reflection on issues, theories and practices in the midst of political and research agendas. GRIGL’s goal is to increase the visibility of research at the University of Ottawa by creating synergy in the communication of the research of its members through seminars and publications. The group provides as well networking and learning opportunities to new researchers as well as undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate students interested in the field.
