Unique characters for Cree/Inuktitut are not yet encoded in the Unicode

The Unicode Technical Committee is very much aware of the work of Canadian
Aboriginal Syllabics Encoding Committee on a syllabary for the Algonquian
(including Cree), Athapascan, and Inuktitut language groups. The Chair of
CASEC, Dirk Vermeulen, gave a presentation on the work of CASEC to the UTC
in 1994.

The UTC welcomes proposals for additional scripts. Instructions on how to
submit a proposal are in Appendix D of Volume 1 of "The Unicode Standard,
Version 1.0".
