‘Listening to families in our area all requesting the same thing, which is access to language’

A new program for Indigenous families in the area looks to help restore a language that was taken away from them during colonization.

The Upper Grand District School Board and the Dufferin-Peel Catholic DSB will be launching Anishinaabemowin Nanda-gikendan – “Seeking to Learn the Language,” in September.
