The Indigenous Languages Program (INLP) works with Indigenous speech communities and organizations to enable Indigenous language learning off-campus in Indigenous communities.
About the Indigenous Languages Program
Since 1993 and in partnership with Indigenous organizations, we have offered courses in some 18 languages in British Columbia and Yukon. The program resides in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) at SFU.
In collaboration with the Department of Linguistics, we also offer Indigenous languages programs at the graduate level.
