How you can get involved
In keeping with the 2013 FEL conference themes, our approach is one of collaboration, building on community connections and a variety of research, skills and disciplines.
We welcome the involvement of people from all kinds of backgrounds, and with all kinds of skills: First Nations, Inuit and Métis individuals, communities and organizations; people in research and education at all levels; people with experience in working with minority language communities; people with skills in organizational management, accounting, fund-raising, law and communications - in short, every person can make a difference in the future of Canada’s indigenous languages!
When we issue a call for members in the near future, we would like you to consider joining. You could simply be a member, or you could also contribute through the organizational positions to be filled within FEL Canada:
translators for communications (all languages of Canada)
volunteer language expert or consultant
Can you help with one of these roles? Can you think of other people who might like to get involved? Are there other ways that people could help? Please let us know by joining FEL Canada.
If you would like to support our projects but don't have the time, donations of any amount would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to make a donation by clicking on the "I want to make a difference" button below.
