“Aboriginal Neighbours and the First Peoples’ Cultural Council (FPCC) are very grateful to AFC for the grants provided to support FPCC’s Mentor-Apprentice Indigenous language learning teams over the past eight years. In 2022-23, AFC’s grant is supporting two second-year teams: one near Victoria, working with the SENĆOŦEN language, and one in Nanaimo, working with the Hul’q’umi’num’ language. Aboriginal Neighbours’ Revitalizing Indigenous Living Languages project is also supported by parish and individual fundraising, and a three-year grant from the United Church of Canada Healing Fund.”
The Anglican Foundation of Canada (AFC) works to foster Anglican presence by providing abundant resources for innovative ministry and diverse infrastructure projects and theological formation throughout the Canadian church.
