The 6th Annual Mother Language Festival organized by the Mother Language Lovers of the World Society (MLLWS) will bring together Canadians of various linguistic and cultural origins to celebrate our mother languages and cultural heritage, and to enrich Canadian multiculturalism and intercultural harmony.

We also promote the International Mother Language Day (February 21) to build national as well as community-level capacity for inclusive education and multilingualism as envisioned by the UNESCO.

At this festival, there will be greetings and short speeches, recitation of poems and storytelling by various language speakers, and music and dance performances by members of various ethnic groups. Light refreshments will be provided.
