Aboriginal Education

Aboriginal Education and Native Studies
Ontario's Aboriginal Education Strategy will help more First Nations, Métis and Inuit students achieve their full potential. The strategy includes initiatives that support learning and achievement for Aboriginal students. It will also help raise awareness about First Nations, Métis and Inuit cultures, histories, and perspectives in schools.

Native Studies Curriculum
Native studies provide students in Ontario schools with a broad range of knowledge related to Aboriginal peoples to help them better understand Aboriginal issues of public interest discussed at the local, regional, and national levels. Students will develop the skills necessary to discuss issues and participate in public affairs. Through their involvement in Native studies, they will increase their awareness and understanding of the history, cultures, world views, and contributions of Aboriginal peoples in Canada. The program will also provide students with opportunities to enhance the problem-solving and critical-thinking skills that they will require in postsecondary education, the world of work, and their roles as active citizens.
