Indigenous Languages in Education

Description

Alberta Education acknowledges the importance of preserving, maintaining, strengthening and revitalizing Indigenous languages. Research has demonstrated a strong correlation between language acquisition and positive student outcomes. The Indigenous Languages in Education grant program (ILE) supports Alberta Education’s goal to develop and implement provincial strategies to support Kindergarten to Grade 12 (K-12) Indigenous language and culture programming. The ILE grant program is intended to enhance, not replace federal funding and programming support for First Nations Education.
