Funding For Minority-Language Education and Second-Language Instruction
Protocol 2013/2014 – 2017/2018
Recognizing that education is a provincial/territorial responsibility, the federal government has, since 1971, provided funding to provinces and territories to help support minority-language education and second-language instruction in Canada from kindergarten to grade 12 and at the post-secondary level.
The current Protocol for Agreements for Minority-Language Education and Second-Language Instruction 2009-2013 will end in March 2013.
As such, Alberta along with the other provinces and territories, through the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC), has engaged in negotiations with Canadian Heritage to establish a new Protocol for Agreements for Minority-Language Education and Second-Language Instruction (Protocol).
The proposed new Protocol for 2013-2018 will guide the development of an Alberta-Canada Bilateral Agreement and Action Plan, including the criteria for the allocation of federal funding.In anticipation of the official approvals of the 2013-2018 Protocol and the Alberta – Canada agreement, we are accepting proposals from school jurisdictions. Please complete the proposal template and submit it by June 28, 2013 (details are included in the proposal template).
It is important to note that funding allocations cannot be shared or guaranteed prior to the official approvals and agreement being signed. At this point, the submission of a school jurisdiction’s proposals is used merely for the purposes of planning.
