FEL Canada Strengthening First Nation, Inuit and Métis Languages of Canada

Welcome! from the FEL Canada team
This newsletter is a special one. It’s our first newsletter, and it marks many new beginnings. In January of this year, FEL Canada was incorporated to work toward its stated purpose:
FEL Canada exists to safeguard cultural heritage for future generations by enabling the documentation, protection, revitalization and promotion of First Nation, Inuit and Métis languages in Canada, and endangered languages throughout the world.
In June, we held our first Annual General Meeting with a group of 20 interested individuals, and we’ve grown to about 40 people now. The membership decided on its first elected board, and we are proud to have Lorna Wanosts’a7 Williams as our President.
Our website (http://www.felcanada.org/) is up and running, and it looks great (thank-you, Adam Stone!). There, you’ll be able to see what we’re doing and find ways to connect and join our team of volunteers.
We hope you will consider serving with your own special skills and working toward your own goals, and our common purpose, for strengthening the languages of this land!
Med vennlig hilsen, With warm regards,
Erik Anonby, Executive Director
on behalf of the FEL Canada Board
