The federal and Yukon governments, Yukon First Nations, and the Council of Yukon First Nations have signed an MOU to support the educational success of First Nations students in the territory. The agreement will help launch a long-term strategic plan for a First Nations student's life-long learning process focusing on the K-12 system. It also recognizes all aspects of life-long learning, and calls for initiatives to recognize the diversity of Yukon First Nations peoples, while taking into account the need for culturally-appropriate education. Aboriginal Affairs News Release
