FPCC Resources and Supports

Here are some additional resources and supports available through FPCC. This list will continue to grow as we add more resources.

FPCC’s Language Revitalization Planning Program
The Language Revitalization Planning Program supports First Nations communities in B.C. to develop comprehensive, long-term plans for revitalizing and strengthening their languages. These plans are a way to capture the community’s vision for their language and map out the work for language revitalization into the future. The planning process also helps to build community awareness around language.

The Language Revitalization Planning Program includes peer-to-peer sharing through virtual gatherings and one-on-one coaching support from FPCC as well as helpful resources and templates.

A Guide to Language Policy and Planning for B.C. First Nations Communities
This all-in-one guide to language planning and policy development is relevant for community members, language planning teams (language authorities), educators, First Nations leadership, and policy makers. The guide lays the foundation for community-based language revitalization efforts, from surveying speakers to developing a community language plan and implementing language policies and programs. It is packed with useful information, resource lists and templates for community use.

Grant Writing Resources
FPCC has compiled a few resources to support applicants with writing great grants.

Check Before You Tech
This guide presents some important considerations when choosing to build or purchase language apps and software. It provides a checklist of questions to ask before starting a project to purchase or develop an app or software for language. It covers considerations such as ownership and control of data, long term costs of maintenance, and how the technology will be used by learners and speakers.

Working With Elders
FPCC developed this free resource to support anyone who is interested in working with Elders. The guide provides considerations and suggestions about ways to respectfully engage with Elders and Knowledge Keepers, including suggestions for working with Elders during COVID-19 restrictions.
