The vision of the Western Cape Language Committee is the empowerment of all the people of the Western Cape through language, the enhancement of human dignity through mutual respect for language, and the promotion of multilingualism.

The Committee's mission is to monitor the use of the three official languages of the Western Cape; monitor the implementation of the Western Cape Language Policy; and advise the MEC, tasked with language matters, and the Pan South African Language Board (PanSALB) on language matters in or affecting the province.
