This program, funded in part by Heritage Canada, pairs fluent speakers with motivated adult learners for one-on-one immersion-based learning in the community.
Community-based Michif speakers and learners are involved in audio, video and print documentation of Michif language, focusing on the needs of language learners.
Both print (books, handouts, etc.) and digital (online courses, digital dictionaries, etc.) language learning and reference materials are being created based on legacy and new documentation.
Members of P2WILRC teach (or co-teach) Southern Michif as sessional instructors at the University of Manitoba and Brandon University.
Members of P2WILRC are involved in both on-line and face-to-face instruction of Métis learners across the homelands and diaspora, and supportive allies across Canada and around the globe.
P2WILRC, along with trusted collaborators, actively consult on varied facets of language revitalization for school divisions and other organizations across the homelands.
P2WILRC advocates for the language revitalization of Michif and other Indigenous languages by addressing a variety of Métis government bodies, the Federal government and international organizations.
