Alberta’s Expression of Reconciliation to improve First Nations, Métis and Inuit education was shared on March 27, 2014, at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) event in Edmonton.
This promise included:
Implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples was one of the TRC’s calls to action. The Declaration will guide Alberta Education’s work in First Nations, Métis and Inuit education.
The First Nations, Métis and Inuit Policy Framework guides the education system to strengthen knowledge and understanding of First Nations, Métis and Inuit perspectives among all students; provide First Nations, Métis and Inuit learners with culturally relevant learning opportunities; and enhance reporting on the achievement of educational outcomes.
