MOST RECENT RELEASE:
INDIGENOUS LANGUAGES RECOGNITION, PRESERVATION AND REVITALIZATION; A REPORT ON THE NATIONAL DIALOGUE SESSION ON INDIGENOUS LANGUAGES
FPCC is pleased to share the report: Indigenous Languages Recognition, Preservation and Revitalization; A Report on the National Dialogue Session on Indigenous Languages.
The report is the result of a facilitated three-day dialogue session, hosted by FPCC, in Victoria, British Columbia, in which a group of Indigenous experts from across Canada were invited to provide their expertise and share best practices in the areas of language revitalization, language education, language legislation and policy, and an urban language strategy. This small think tank was funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage, which is currently exploring the renewal of its language programs.
The report will be submitted to the Department of Canadian Heritage and to the Assembly of First Nations and may be used as a starting point for further consultations with First Nations on the development of a new federal language program.
It is our hope that this work will advance the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action.
Feedback or recommendations regarding the report may be directed to the Aboriginal Languages Initiative – Aboriginal Peoples’ Program at the Department of Canadian Heritage.
