Written Question 31-12(7): Funds Transferred From The Inuktitut Literacy Training Program
Item 7: Written Questions

Page 1294

Dennis Patterson Iqaluit

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My written question is for the Minister of Education, Culture and Employment.

Recently, Vote 4 Official Languages funds previously allotted to the very successful Inuktitut literacy program at Nunatta Campus, Nunavut Arctic College, which offered Inuktitut literacy training to every Arctic College student, has now been directed to the Nunavut Arctic College's interpreter/translator program.

Would the Minister responsible for the Department of Education, Culture and Employment please advise this House:

1. Who authorized this decision? 2. Why wasn't the college board or the college vice-president or the affected MLAs consulted about this significant change?

3. Does the Minister of Education, Culture and Employment believe that the interpreter/translator program is more important than the Inuktitut literacy program?

Thank you.
