Indigenous Languages Legislation Engagement

ILDI recruited (15) First Nation, Metis, and Inuit facilitators and fluent Indigenous language speakers from across Canada to facilitate (29) one-day meaningful engagement sessions tailored specifically to the needs of each group keeping in mind of the geographical location and culture.

The one-day agenda was developed based on facilitated engagement to collect feedback on the co-development of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis languages legislation and its’ content specific to geographic, political, legislative, and cultural contexts impacting language revitalization, recovery, preservation, protection, maintenance, and promotion.

The engagement sessions brought community leadership, members as well as, regional-based organizations, language experts and traditional knowledge keepers to lend their voices, to share concerns, ideas, direction and recommendations to inform the Indigenous languages legislation.
