Ontario has an Indigenous Education Strategy to support students who identify as First Nations, Métis and Inuit. Within Avon Maitland District School Board we uphold the mandates provided from the Ministry of Education to ensure students are reaching their full potential. We also provide educators with professional learning to support the Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action are being met. We strive to engage our local community to support us in this work through our Indigenous Education Advisory Committee, welcoming Indigenous speakers into our classrooms and schools and connecting our students with the history and current commitments in our Treaty Relationships.
