ABORIGINAL LANGUAGE RESOURCES
At the present time in the Northwest Territories, there are only a few sources of funding for Aboriginal language projects and activities.
Government of the Northwest Territories
The Government of the Northwest Territories provides direct funding for Aboriginal language activities from its own Education, Culture, and Employment (ECE) budget and also administers funding received through the "Canada NWT Cooperation Agreement for French and Aboriginal Languages".
During the 1998/99 fiscal year, the following Aboriginal language allocations were made.
During the 1999/2000 and subsequent fiscal years, these amounts will change. The GNWT will be routing more money though the Aboriginal language communities (again via regional Tribal Councils) and less through departmental language programs.
