Wabano Centre establishes Cree, Algonquin language classes

July 3, 2013

Ottawa’s Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health will offer classes in Algonquin and Cree starting this September. The languages program will offer 2 classes: one for school-aged children, and one credited course for high school students and adults. The funding for the new classes was provided by the local French Catholic school board’s international languages program. A spokesperson for the Wabano Centre said they are expecting a lot of interest in the courses, and although each class has limited enrolment room, they expect the courses to be offered “for a long time” due to long-term funding provisions. Ottawa West EMC
