The Chiefs of Ontario and Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) will be hosting in-person K-12 Funding Formula Side by Side Information Sessions to support communities and First Nation nominal roll holders understand the side by side document. The side by side document is produced by ISC annually and provided to First Nations and First Nation nominal roll holders. It is a tool to outline funding for K-12 education generated through the Interim Funding Approach/Interim Funding Formula.
The information session will walk participants through the document and provide an opportunity for one on one sessions with ISC to go over individual side by sides.
