Language Nest Centre Delayed

Funding problems have delayed programming at the Inuaggualuit Centre in Hopedale.

Toni White is the Language Program Coordinator for the Torngâsok Cultural Centre.

She says they are dealing with agencies now to secure the funding.

Funds for the centre come from the federal government’s Aboriginal Language Initiative.

The funding is used to pay the salaries of the centre’s two Inuktitut teachers.

White says the Department of Health and Social Development and the Nunatsiavut Government also provide funds for the centre.

White hopes the centre will be operating in a couple of weeks.
