At last, a font designed to support First Nations languages!!

Some awesome news, via the First People’s Cultural Council:

Let’s talk font! 💻

🧑🏽‍💻 If you spend time working on computers, you may know how tricky it can be to find fonts compatible with the special characters and syllabics in Indigenous languages.

✨We wanted to let you know about the BC Sans font, which has been designed to properly support special characters and syllabics found in First Nations languages in B.C.

⌨️ This font is open-source and can be downloaded for free on the Government of B.C.’s website.

If you’re typing on your phones, don’t forget about our  keyboard apps available at

(This means that autocorrect hopefully won’t keep autocorrecting an Indigenous name or word to something random and NOT WHAT YOU MEANT.)
