McGill program in Indigenous languages and literacy education sees impressive graduating class

McGill University’s Certificate in Indigenous Language and Literacy Education saw its largest graduating class yet in November 2018. The certificate is offered in partnership between the university and First Nations and Inuit community organizations, giving Algonquin, Cree, Inuit, Mi’kmaq and Kanienkehaka (Mohawk) students the opportunity to study their languages without leaving their communities.


Over 40 students walked the stage at Place des Arts to receive their certificates this year, compared to the usual cohort of 20 to 30 students. Many of the students will go on to teach their languages in their communities.
