ourlanguages.gc.ca on the go! is the Government of Canada's first ever mobile linguistic application.
It lets iPhone and BlackBerry users search TERMIUM Plus®, the Government of Canada's terminology and linguistic data bank, and quickly find equivalents for nearly 4 million English and French terms in various fields, so Canadians can communicate more easily in both official languages.

I am looking forward to using it at work but the "get the app" button above seems to be broken. I have tried clicking on it from my blackberry and it doesn't work either... can't find the app neither on blackberry world nor play store. Please advise.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are working with the app developer to fix the link.
