Indigenous Languages Revitalization Program (ILRP)

The goal of the Indigenous Languages Revitalization Program is to support the development of the Friendship Centre language hubs and will work toward integrating Indigenous languages within the Friendship Centres and communities through the provision of community-based Indigenous Language Programming.

The ILRP strives to provide resources and materials to ensure that participants receive a high-quality of Indigenous language and culture education that meets their needs. This program provides access to culture and/or land-based Indigenous Language activities and requires Friendship Centres to create partnerships and build relationships with external agencies that support Indigenous Language Learning.

Indigenous Languages Revitalization Plan 

Nogojiwanong Friendship Centre is developing an Indigenous Languages Revitalization Plan to provide direction on the development of programs and services that will preserve, sustain and grow our languages. 

We are seeking feedback from staff, community members and community partners to develop a draft plan that will be shared in March 2023.  

A community event will be held in the spring of 2023 to celebrate the completion of the plan.
