Third Progress Report on Indigenous Education

March 9, 2018

Strengthening Our Learning Journey is the Third Progress Report on the implementation of the Ontario First Nation, Métis, and Inuit Education Policy Framework (2007). The framework aims to support the well-being and achievement of Indigenous learners and increase all students' knowledge and understanding of First Nation, Métis and Inuit histories, cultures, contributions and perspectives. The report highlights recent achievements and reflects ten years of collaboration with Indigenous partners, education partners, students, communities and families.

The Third Progress Report describes the strengthening of these relationships and concludes with a look at the journey ahead including next steps to refresh Ontario's Indigenous Education Strategy to meet the evolving needs of Indigenous learners across the province.
