Province of Manitoba to implement an Aboriginal Languages Strategy

September 28, 2015

In response to the recommendations in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s report, the Province of Manitoba has developed a partnership with educational leaders to preserve Aboriginal languages.

Elders from all seven Aboriginal language groups recognized in Manitoba assisted with the developments of the following goals of the Manitoba Aboriginal Language Strategy:

  • develop a system for sharing resources and expertise,
  • create a partnership agreement to keep Aboriginal languages alive,
  • establish an Indigenous research group focusing on Aboriginal languages,
  • develop a communication strategy to promote Aboriginal languages; and
  • promote and develop land-based teacher training with the purpose of producing more fluent speakers/teachers.

Find more information on the Province’s original news release at Province of Manitoba - Province Announces Historic Partnership To Protect, Promote Aboriginal Languages.
