From November 1 – 5, the Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association and Catholic school boards across Ontario are acknowledging Treaties Recognition Week.
In schools, teachers will be fulfilling the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action for educational institutions #62(i) by sharing “age-appropriate curriculum on…Treaties.”
Various resources for the curriculum have been created to deepen understanding and awareness in the classroom regarding this important part of our history. These resources can be viewed at the links below:
- The First Nations and Treaties Map
- The First Nations and Treaties Map of Ontario: Information for Educators
- Backgrounder on Treaties in Ontario
- The Ministry of Indigenous Affairs
