Madam Speaker, I would like to begin by thanking the member for Northwest Territories for his work in supporting indigenous languages.
Budget 2019 provided $337.7 million over five years and $115.7 million ongoing to support the preservation, promotion and revitalization of indigenous languages. When we formed government in 2015, this amount was only $5 million per year for all languages in communities across the country. With this investment through budget 2019, we were able to fund 337 language activities across communities.
We are continuing to work hard and work in partnership
