What is the current status of literary translation in Canada? How does the emphasis on the two official languages (English and French) affect the funding and publication of translations into and from non-official languages?

Participants will discuss the above questions, and more, including dynamic exceptions to the English-French axis rule and future opportunities for increasing dialogue and literary exchange. An open discussion will follow.
