With over 60 Aboriginal languages being spoken in Canada, there’s been a rapid increase in requests for translations to Aboriginal languages. As the number of requests for Aboriginal language translations continues to increase, winstranslation is constantly increasing the number of Aboriginal languages we provide services in. In 2012, when wintranslation first started providing Aboriginal translation services, we only translated to a handful of languages. Now, wintranslation provides translation services into over 35 of Canada’s 60 Aboriginal languages including, Cree, Inuktitut, Mohawk, Michif and Ojibway.

It is important that we recognize these languages as that is key to not only keeping these languages alive, but the preservation of these languages has been proven to benefit speakers in many ways, including keeping them connected to their culture and improving mental health.

This infographic provides you with some facts that will give you a better idea of the current status of Aboriginal languages in Canada.
