The Sechelt language, Sháshíshálh or Shashishalhem (/ʃáʃíʃáɬəm/), is a Coast Salish language spoken by the Shishalh (Sechelt) people of southwestern British Columbia, Canada, centered on their reserve communities in the Sechelt Peninsula area of the Sunshine Coast.
As of 2014, the Coastal Corridor Consortium, "an entity made up of board members from First Nations and educational partners to improve aboriginal access to and performance in postsecondary education and training" has created a Sechelt Nation language certificate.
