From page 19:”The Province is also working with Indigenous partners to enhance the Ontario curriculum in order to support mandatory learning about residential schools, the legacy of colonialism and the rights and responsibilities we all have to each other as treaty people. As part of the comprehensive strategy, Ontario is also working with partners to create curriculum-linked resources and develop supports that will build educator capacity.”
From page 25: ” Ontario is working with Indigenous partners and post-secondary education stakeholders in developing a stand-alone Aboriginal Institutes Policy to incorporate Indigenous-owned and -controlled post-secondary institutes into Ontario’s post-secondary education and training system. ”
