Third Progress Report Survey

Introduction

Welcome to the 2017 survey on the implementation of the Ontario First Nation, Métis and Inuit Education Policy Framework (2007). Your participation is very important to us, and will help the Ministry of Education learn more about the unique and diverse needs of Indigenous students to support more responsive and effective education policies.

What is this survey about?

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.
 
That’s why we are inviting you to participate in this survey. The survey will address the progress made in the implementation of the Framework since the release of the Second Progress Report in 2013. Everyone’s views are important, whether or not you feel you have a little or great deal of experience to share.
