Jade LaFontaine is Salish on her father’s side from Spuzzum First Nation and Algonquin on her mother’s side from Kitigan Anishinabeg First Nation. She is currently completing her Masters thesis in Second Language Education at McGill University under the supervision of Dr. Angelica Galante and Dr. Mela Sarkar. Her project mainly focuses on which tools Indigenous language teachers prefer for online language instruction. She graduated in the fall of 2019 from UBC with her BA in First Nations and Endangered Languages (FNEL) and was the first person at UBC to complete the newly approved program. Most recently she has been accepted for a pilot research project with MITACS, and she is currently working on that alongside her thesis!
