Notes

  1. The statistics provided reflect the languages and students that were reported and eligible for funding through the Heritage Language Support Grant of Manitoba Education. Schools may elect not to apply for support or the minimum time allotments required are not met.
  2. Independent and Federally funded schools are not included in the statistics as they are not eligible for the Heritage Language Support Grant. However, a variety of Native/Aboriginal and International Languages are offered. For example German, Hebrew, Japanese, Spanish, and Ukrainian are offered in some Independent schools and Aboriginal languages are offered in some Band-operated schools.
  3. Independent Study courses in German (Grades 9 to 12), Spanish (Grades 9 to 12), and Ukrainian (Grades 7 to 12) are offered through the Distance Delivery Unit of Manitoba Education. The students taking these courses are also not reflected in the statistics provided in these charts.
  4. Some schools may offer before or after school programs that are not eligible for funding and not included in school reports. For example, Seven Oaks School Division offers an after school program that includes Filipino, Ojibwe, Portuguese, Punjabi and several other languages.
