What is the First Nation, Metis, and Inuit Education Policy?
This commitment includes the implementation of the Ontario Ministry of Education's First Nation, Métis, and Inuit Education Policy Framework, which was released in 2007. We will be working to support success for Aboriginal learners by increasing awareness of the learning styles of Aboriginal students, and increasing understanding of First Nation, Métis and Inuit cultures, histories, and perspectives.
The framework also aims to help all students in Ontario understand and appreciate contemporary and traditional First Nation, Métis and Inuit traditions, cultures, and perspectives.
What is Trillium Lakelands doing to implement this initiative?
