Registration for the indigenous language classes

About the program:
Native Montreal is proud to contribute to the revitalization of Indigenous languages by offering free languages courses to its members. These introductory courses are designed to provide opportunities for Indigenous people to learn their languages and will help Indigenous people that have limited knowledge of their languages to improve them. We also want to provide an opportunity for non Indigenous people to discover one of the indigenous languages spoken in Quebec.


Next semester starts on:
Second week of January 2019


Registration are now closed, except for inuktitut for children 
Online form available on this link: www.iregisternow.com/nativemontreal/Cours-de-langue-automne-2018/

Registration process:
Please note that we are using a new system for the registration process. You will need to create a Logizone account to access the final part of the registration. All personal information is treated with confidentiality and can only be accessed by employees responsible of Native Montreal's programs.

Only one application is accepted per session, so please choose carefully which course you are interested in the most. 

Priority:
Priority will be given to our indigenous members, then to our non indigenous members in direct contact with an indigenous person (tutor, parent, social worker...) then to our non indigenous members.
