A few years later, Ignace and her husband co-published A Secwépemc People, Land, and Laws: Yerí7 re Stsq'ey's-kucw through the McGill-Queen's University Press. Their book was "a model of collaborative approaches to Indigenous history", which included oral histories and 'western' scholarship from both Aboriginal and external sources. It eventually won the 2018 Basil Stuart-Stubbs Prize for outstanding Scholarly Book on British Columbia. In 2019, the couple received the Governor General's Award for Innovation "for developing a collaborative approach to research involving Indigenous people and communities". During the same year, Ignace won one of five SSHRC Impact Awards to fund her efforts to document and preserve British Columbia indigenous languages.


In 2013, Ignace was appointed the director of SFU's inaugural First Nations Language Centre and also received a $2.5-million partnership grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) to preserve indigenous languages. While serving in this role, she helped establish the Tlli7sa Storybook app, a series of applications aimed at general education of First Nations cultural history and language. Ignace also helped create the First Nations Language Proficiency Certificate in order to combat extinction of the Squamish language.


Upon receiving her PhD, Ignace and her husband Chief Ron Ignace founded SFU's Kamloops satellite campus within the Shuswap nation. They were originally set up in an old Indian residential school before expanding into SFU's Kamloops campus. In their first year operating, they had twenty students before doubling that number in their second year. She was subsequently awarded a SFU's Outstanding Alumni Award for "academic achievements and service to the community" and the 2005 CUFA/BC Career Achievement Award. Along with their efforts, Ignace helped establish Shuswap as an optional second language in School District 73 Kamloops/Thompson. During the program's run, Ignace and her husband taught approximately 450 students, 90 per cent of which were First Nation adults who had never pursued a university education.
