Indigenous Language Instructor's Program

Programs to Help you Find your Voice

As part of the Department of Aboriginal Education, our Indigenous Language Instructor’s  Program (ILIP) works to make learning and instructing an Algonquian language accessible to  Indigenous and non-Indigenous learners.  We offer many programs that help you to use or teach an Algonquian language effectively.

Our Indigenous language programs help you to learn an Algonquian language, but also learn about its cultural, historical, and sociological importance.  Once you complete an Indigenous language program, you will have the knowledge to use an Algonquian language or the qualifications to teach others.
