Take Action: How you can support Indigenous Education

If you are looking for ways to support Indigenous education for all students, here are some ideas to get you started...

From the Honourable Justice Murray Sinclair…

On November 24, 2015, the Honourable Justice Murray Sinclair accepted People for Education’s Ryerson Award for Dedication to Public Education. In his acceptance speech, Justice Sinclair said “If you are looking for something to do, pick one of the calls to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and make it happen!”  Individuals, schools, and communities can join together to ensure that this report does not gather dust. Choose one of the 94 Calls to Action and help to ensure that it is implemented.
