|The First Peoples’ Cultural Council (FPCC) is holding regional sessions in May and June to talk about the promised Indigenous language legislation for Canada. Our goal is to ensure that B.C. language experts are well-informed so that when the national Assembly of First Nations (AFN) does its consultations, everyone will be prepared to provide input.
FPCC will be compiling a report based on the information we gather at these sessions, and First Nations communities are encouraged to develop their own position papers to submit to the Minister of the Department of Canadian Heritage and the national AFN. We will also be talking about the new federal language funding and how we can prepare to effectively invest this new money.
Sessions will be held in Kelowna, Prince George, Richmond, Nanaimo and Terrace. Click here to visit our website for more information about the sessions and to download an RSVP form to secure your attendance.
Please share this invitation widely with your contacts. We look forward to seeing you there!
