Special Announcement - Survey

Survey for Parents and Students 

The Ministry of Education is committed to improving Indigenous education in Ontario, improving student achievement and well-being, and closing the achievement gap between Indigenous students and all students. In 2007, the Ontario Ministry of Education launched the Ontario First Nation, Métis, and Inuit Education Policy Framework (the Framework). The Framework guides the Ministry of Education, school boards and schools as they work together to improve and support the achievement and well-being of Indigenous students who attend Ontario’s provincially-funded elementary and secondary schools, and to increase the knowledge and awareness of all students about Indigenous histories, cultures, perspectives and contributions.

The Ministry has made a commitment to release a progress report on the implementation of the Framework every three years. Progress Reports were released in 2009 and 2013. The next progress report on the implementation of the Framework is scheduled to be released in Fall 2017. To inform the development of this report, the Ministry is hoping to hear from students, parents/guardians and family members, educators, and First Nation, Métis and Inuit communities and organizations about the progress that has been made in Indigenous education.


You and your child are invited to participate in the following survey which will address the progress made in the implementation of the Framework:
https://questionnaire.simplesurvey.com/s/ThirdProgressReport


Everyone’s views are important, whether or not you feel you have a little or great deal of experience to share! The survey is voluntary and confidential. The information received will be combined anonymously in a report that will be used to inform the development of the Third Progress Report.
