FEL Canada Newsletter 2: February 2016

Welcome! from the FEL Canada team
2015 proved to be a busy first year for Foundation FEL Canada and we are excited by the growth that we have experienced in this short time. Our membership has grown to nearly 50 supporters of language vitality in our first year! Due to your support, we expect to begin directly assisting in language projects soon, which is very exciting, indeed! We hope to continue building our network and further solidify our ability to raise awareness of the benefits of strengthening ancestral and heritage languages in Canada and around the world – so, please, spread the word!
What else have we been up to? Since incorporation, we have stayed busy behind the scenes with the tedious, but necessary, administrative stuff – not the least of which is that we have applied for charitable status. This will grant us access to other funding opportunities – and so strengthen our ability to assist you in accomplishing your language projects. We are aflutter with the possibilities and will keep you posted on our progress.
Along administrative lines, we have made it easier for people to join FEL Canada and to make donations by offering PayPal as a payment option on our website. Yes, we have also updated our website and have established a page on Facebook! Visit us at http://www.felcanada.org/ and like our page: https://www.facebook.com/felanguagescanada/ which has relevant news posted with great frequency. Our Facebook page is a great way to stay informed of ancestral and heritage language news. Finally, we were very proud to produce our first, and now our second newsletter, packed with more information that we hope inspires you, our members.
