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