Signed Letter to Minister of Heritage to allocate funding to Indigenous Language Programs


Here is my letter to the Minister of Heritage with copies to the P.M. and the Ministers of Indigenous-Crown Relations and Indigenous Services about her Department's intention to change the formula used by the government to allocate funding to Indigenous language programs. This could result in a catastrophic reduction of support for B.C First Nations language programs by 50%. This is both short-sighted of the government and hypocritical given the Prime Minister's declaration that there is no relationship more important for Canada than with its First Nations. So much progress has been made to re-awaken or restore Indigenous languages in our provinces and this will be devastating for educators and learners.
