We're all in this together quebec

This project, funded by the department of Canadian heritage, is a co-production between ELAN and Seniors Action Quebec.  We’re All In This Together will create 18 episodes of content specially selected for seniors, who have been particularly hard-hit by Covid-19. Everyone working on the projects has parents and grandparents and we are thrilled to be creating content to support them The media has embraced the project and the first episodes were generously covered byThe Gazette, Westmount Mag, CBC, CJAD, Global TV, and other regional media.

The first two episodes – Holiday Baking: Making Sugar Cookies with Hainya & Linda and A Holiday Concert with Susie Arioli, Dawn Tyler Watson, Jennifer Gasoi and Solstice – were release in December. Our third episode launched in January featuring Art Therapist, Sarah Tevyaw. In this meditative video, Sarah guides viewers through the process of creating a Mandala. You can see these and future episodes on our YouTube channel and receive news on Facebook. Please share these episodes with the seniors in your life – and enjoy them yourself.

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.
