Canadore, Kenjgewin Teg sign principles-based PSE agreement

July 12, 2017

Kenjgewin Teg Educational Institute and Canadore College have signed a memorandum of understanding that aims to strengthen Indigenous Anishinabek PSE through a student-centred approach. The agreement is reportedly the first of its kind in Ontario. “Creating meaningful and respectful relationships in Indigenous education is critical now in our history; when we reflect back on this day many years from now, it may be one of those critical moments which represented one small step but significant enough to make a tremendous difference in Indigenous education for the next generation,” said Stephanie Roy, executive director of Kenjgewin Teg. Under the agreement, both institutions will undertake efforts such as providing enhanced culturally-relevant learning for Indigenous-Anishinabek learners, supporting stakeholders in increasing cross-understanding and reciprocity among Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, and creating and implementing intellectual and cultural traditions of Indigenous-Anishinabek peoples through on-campus and community-led postsecondary learning.
