Aboriginal languages in Canada can and should be made official

Making all 60 indigenous languages spoken in Canada official, along with English and French, is entirely doable, according to a University of Victoria expert.

Onowa McIvor, director of indigenous education at the University of Victoria, says the proposal has been made by First Nations leaders multiple times over the past few decades, but little has been done.

"These are their heritage languages as well, the original languages of this country, and I think we should all be concerned that they're not already official languages."
