ON Ministry, Tungasuvvingat Inuit agree to work together to support Inuit learners

November 29, 2017

Delegates from the Ontario Ministry of Education and Tungasuvvingat Inuit met in Toronto on Monday, to sign an agreement in principle that is intended to “strengthen support for Indigenous learners.” The agreement will provide a framework for the province to accomplish a number of shared goals, such as improving academic achievement for Inuit students from kindergarten to high school; improving the wellbeing of students and their families; protecting and promoting the culture, identity, and heritage of Inuit in Ontario; and to support all learners to understand and heighten their awareness of Inuit history, culture, and rights. The framework also aims to build on recent collaborative work.
