New Stop Signs in Traditional Indigenous Language Installed in Fort Chipewyan

Fort Chipewyan is getting some new traffic signs.

Stop signs in the hamlet now say stop in three different languages, Cree, Dnesulin, and English.

“As a Municipality, we’re committed to advancing Reconciliation and building stronger, more inclusive communities in the region,” said Mayor Don Scott.

“The Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action highlight the importance of promoting, revitalizing, and strengthening Indigenous languages and we look forward to working in partnership with Indigenous communities across the region to see more signs installed.”

This is a first for the region, however, plans for more signs with the traditional indigenous languages on them are in the works for 2021.

A celebration video was also created to acknowledge the new signs.
