Today the Ministry announced increased funding for Indigenous students.

From the announcement: “This new funding is allowing all school boards across Ontario to hire a dedicated Indigenous Education Lead to support the implementation of Ontario’s Indigenous Education Strategy, with a focus on increasing Indigenous student achievement and well-being. The lead is also responsible for collaborating with First Nation, Métis and Inuit communities, organizations, students and families to build Indigenous knowledge and awareness among all students.”

And: Quick Facts

  • Ontario is increasing its investment in Indigenous education by more than $6 million.
  • Overall funding for Indigenous Education in the 2016-17 Grants for Student Needs is projected to be $64 million – an increase of about $52 million since 2007.
  • A new resource to support voluntary, confidential Indigenous student self-identification is giving school boards the data they need to better customize programming to support Indigenous student achievement and well-being.
  • The Indigenous Education Strategy sets the foundation for improving achievement among Indigenous students in provincially-funded schools and supports life-long learning as students transition to postsecondary education, training, or workplace opportunities.
