After months of working with Parker Mah and Spencer Mann at COCo’s Commun-IT Program, ELAN is happy to present a brand new website! Along with our outgoing Communications Assistant Erika LeBlanc, who was with us to the financial support of Emploi-Québec de l’Île-de-Montréal, the COCo team brought our dreams to life with a new website with improved usability, new features, a great new look, and a fresh logo and visual identity designed by Gabriel Jasmin (AKA Studio Monument).  

Browse around our new site to check out the new platform and features, and to see what we’ve been up to and what our plans are for the upcoming year!

ELAN is an official minority language organization within a country that recognizes two languages as official. ELAN is located in Tiohtiak:ke, the original name for Montreal in Kanien’kéha, the language of the Mohawk—also known as Mooniyang, which is the Anishinaabeg name given to the city by the Algonquin. While we are based in this city, our projects have also taken place in many regions across Quebec.

We acknowledge the colonial origin of English and French in Canada, and recognize that both languages benefit from official status throughout the land. The province that we know as Quebec is an amalgamation of the traditional territories of the Innu and Inuit nations, Algonquian nations, as well as the Mohawk nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Kanien’kéha and Anishinaabeg are but two of the original languages of this province; Atikamekw, Cree, Inuktitut, and Innu-aimun are also among the many Indigenous languages spoken across Quebec as majority languages, all well before French and English.

ELAN acknowledges the important work being done by First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to revive the traditional languages of these territories, and their advocacy for the official status of Indigenous languages.
