NWT signs agreement to use BC curriculum from junior kindergarten to Grade 12

January 12, 2022
The Government of the Northwest Territories has announced that it has signed an agreement with the Government of British Columbia to use the BC curriculum for junior kindergarten to Grade 12. BC’s curriculum is competencies-based and best aligned with NWT’s education priorities, and will be phased in over the next few years. The change means that the Alberta curriculum will no longer be used in the NWT. “British Columbia’s redesigned curriculum aims to personalize learning, making it more student-centered and flexible,” said NWT Education Minister RJ Simpson. “With an emphasis on Indigenous knowledge and a focus on literacy and numeracy skills, I am confident that this curriculum will benefit all of the NWT’s JK-12 students.” City News | Nation Talk (NWT)
