The Award of Excellence – Promotion of Linguistic Duality (also called the Award of Excellence for the Promotion of Linguistic Duality) is given annually by the Commissionner of Official Languages. It is given to groups or individuals which are not bound to the Official Languages Act, but whose leadership helped promote Canadian Linguistic Duality, in Canada or Abroad, or helped the development of Official Language Minority Communities.[1] This prise was first awarded in 2009 by Commissionner Graham Fraser, and its first recipient was Linda Leith.[2]
