The FNEC is pleased to invite communities in Quebec and Canada to its 
second Conference on Aboriginal Languages, which is being held October 
24-26, 2004 at the Manoir Saint-Sauveur.

The conference will give participants the opportunity to learn about 
the situation of Aboriginal languages at the national and international 
levels. It will also present various projects that a number of 
communities have undertaken to preserve their languages. Participants 
will be able to discuss the possibilities for carrying out similar 
actions. The FNEC is planning to conclude the event with the 
formulation of recommendations and an action plan for preserving and 
revitalizing the languages of the Aboriginal communities in Quebec.

To make sure the issues are approached from a broader perspective, the 
FNEC is inviting experts from other countries to take part in the 
conference. Indeed, preserving Aboriginal languages is a matter of 
international concern.

The FNEC will also be inviting artists and craftspersons from the 
communities to present their work at the conference. A room will be 
reserved for them. For more information on the conference, please call 
Eve Bastien, at (418) 842-7672.
