Laurentian introduces trilingual signs on campus

August 27, 2019

Members of the Laurentian University community will be greeted by trilingual signs when they return to campus this community. The signs now feature English, French, and Anishinaabemowin, thanks to the translation efforts of Anishinaabemowin speakers over the summer. “With Laurentian University sitting on Atikameksheng Anishnawbek Territory, I am ecstatic to know that the history and language of the Anishinawbek people is being recognized throughout the university through trilingual signs.” said Valerie Richer, Chief of Atikameksheng Anishinawbek. Laurentian stated that the signage change is part of its strategic plan, which aims to make the university into the school of choice for northern, francophone, and Indigenous students from across the world.
