Did you know that, of the 90 Indigenous languages in Canada, all but three are judged to be likely to survive until the middle of the century? And the strongest of the three – Inuktut – may only be spoken by 4% of Inuit homes in Nunavut by 2051.

The loss of Indigenous Languages should be a matter of great public concern in Canada. At least that’s what the Glendon Truth and Reconciliation Declaration on Canada’s Indigenous Language Policy says. The Declaration came out of a language policy course taught last year by Professors Ian Martin and Jean Michel Montsion. Their students hosted a national Colloquium to discuss the problem, and to propose responses to the TRC Commission’s three Calls to Action on Indigenous Language Policy.

After a summer of consultations, the Glendon Declaration will be publicly launched on Tuesday November 15 at 5:00 pm at the International Conference on Languages and Cultures in Contact, to be held at the BMO room, on the first floor of Glendon Hall (Glendon manor). All members of the Glendon community welcome. For more information, contact imartin@glendon.yorku.ca.
