Let’s Speak Together - OCDSB Indigenous Languages Survey

Languages are much more than the words we use. They contain stories, history, culture and identity. 

We want to preserve and celebrate the languages of First Nation, Inuit, and Métis students in OCDSB. To do so, we will be asking Indigenous students (grades 7-12) and parents/caregivers to participate in our Indigenous Languages Survey.

Your thoughts are crucial for us to understand what First Nation, Inuit and Metis languages are in our district and the challenges students face in learning and using them.

This survey is about the experiences, difficulties, and hopes regarding your languages. We want to hear from First Nation, Inuit, and Métis students and parents and caregivers, including those reconnecting with their communities. Your answers will help us create effective plans to support language revitalization actions in the OCDSB.

The survey is completely voluntary. Taking part is your choice, and your answers will be kept private and confidential. The information we gather will be used to guide our efforts to revitalize Indigenous languages in the OCDSB.

Please share your thoughts openly, as they're essential for helping to preserve and learn about the languages of First Nation, Inuit, and Métis communities.

The survey is open until: January 31, 2024
