NWT begins offering trilingual high school diplomas

The Government of the Northwest Territories has announced that high school graduates will receive trilingual high school diplomas. The diplomas will feature English, French, and the graduating student’s choice of one of nine Indigenous languages that are officially recognized within the territory. The seal of the Northwest Territories also includes all 11 official languages. “This showcases and highlights the NWT’s official languages to our students, educators, and families, as well as to their future employers and post-secondary schools nationally and internationally,” said NWT Minister of Education, Culture, and Employment Caitlin Cleveland. “It is my hope that these new trilingual diplomas will be hung with pride for generations to come.”
