Uqausivut Culture and Language Program

1. Promoting and supporting the retention of Inuktitut in an urban setting.

The Uqausivut program began in 2008, since then its been able to offer a variety of language retention activities for children, parents and the community. We believe this program is essential to keeping Inuktitut alive in Ottawa and look forward to continuing this program once further funding is secured.

FALL and Winter Sessions 2018 19 will not be offered this year. Please click on https://www.icor.inuuqatigiit.ca/ for Inuktitut Level 1 and 2 podcasts designed to offer an introduction to Inuktitut.
