Acknowledgement and Recognition for Treaty Lands & Indigenous Territories

National Aboriginal Peoples Day

This amendment (memo only; actual acknowledgements not included) would serve to implement formal, universal, and consistent acknowledgement and recognition for Treaty Lands and Indigenous Territories as part of the opening exercises that all schools perform at the commencement of each school day. The benefits from such an amendment would be numerous and would respond to several calls to action under the final report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Multi-Year Action Plan

In 2015, the provincial executive of the Manitoba School Boards Association identified the development of a multi-year plan for addressing matters related to Aboriginal education, as one of the association’s core priorities for future years.

The report outlines, for each meeting, the date, who presented, the key themes discussed, and some preliminary ideas on specific actions and initiatives that the Manitoba School Boards Association can further consider.
