Canadian Indigenous Languages and Literacy Development Institute Projects
The Canadian Indigenous Languages and Literacy Development Institute is dedicated to the revitalization of Canada’s Indigenous languages through documentation, teaching, and literacy and will be expanding its annual summer school held at the University of Alberta in 2022. New projects include: CILLDI Curricular Expansion, Eastern Canada Expansion and CILLDI in Community.
The Canadian Indigenous Languages and Literacy Development Institute provides support to individuals at the community level by providing basic training in linguistics, native languages, and second language teaching. The Institute also provides other aspects of professional enhancement such as language-related research and policy making.
We provide Indigenous language champions with tools so that they can better promote, protect, practice, and pass on their language. Students also have the unique opportunity to earn university credits while learning about selected Indigenous languages and cultures in Canada.
