Language Engagement Session

Sep 30, 2020

Please be invited to participate in the Métis Nation Virtual Engagement on the implementation of the Indigenous Languages Act on October 5 or October 6, 2020.

The Métis National Council, along with Assembly of First Nations and the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, is working with the Department of Canadian Heritage to achieve the purposes of the Act. The Act supports self-determination of Indigenous Peoples in the reclaiming, revitalizing, strengthening and maintaining of Indigenous languages.

It is important that the Métis Nation has a strong voice in how the Act is implemented. This includes providing advice on the creation of the new Office of the Commissioner of Indigenous Languages and the Act’s commitment to adequate, sustainable and long-term funding for Indigenous languages.

The Métis National Council is interested in reaching as many Métis Nation citizens as possible so feel free to share the notice accordingly.

This engagement session will be repeated on two consecutive dates to give participants a choice. Each session is identical in terms of agenda and content. Please choose which session you would like to attend:
