3rd Progress Report Engagement

Third Progress Report of the Implementation of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit Education Policy Framework

 

As part of the engagement and data collection process, The Indigenous Education Office of the Ministry of Education is pleased to announce the release of the online survey. This survey is intended to capture the successes and help to identify promising practices and opportunities to provide further support to enhance the achievement and well-being of Indigenous students.

 

The English and French versions of the students, parents/guardians and families, teaching and nonteaching staff, Indigenous communities, organizations and partners, and school boards surveys are available by clicking (Control and click) the following links:

 

 

Here are some key things to keep in mind about the survey:

  • Participation in this survey is voluntary.
  • This survey is confidential. That means that all answers will be combined anonymously (without any identifying information) with the answers received from other participants. No one who sees the answers will be able to link them to any individual person.
  • We will respect the data sharing protocols of the school boards, the Ministry of Education, and First Nation, Métis and Inuit communities and organizations.  
  • The information received will be combined anonymously in a report that will be used to inform the development of the Third Progress Report.
  • Anyone can stop doing this survey at any time without any repercussions.

In addition to the online survey, we are also pleased to be offering a series online focus groups for students, parents/guardians and families, teaching and nonteaching staff, and Indigenous communities, organizations and partners to share their perspectives.
