Our Indigenous Education Strategy: A Pathway and Commitment to Transformative Change

Indigenous education has long been advocated for in Canada. This work has always been led by Indigenous peoples themselves – from individuals to social movements, from political bodies to NGOs. We are excited to share the college’s official Indigenous Education Strategy with our community and partners as a vital step in this process.

Our strategy recognizes the inherent Aboriginal and Treaty right to education established in the 1996 Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples (RCAP).

We encourage our community to read the strategy in full to understand our vision, and answers to the key questions:

  • What does Indigenous education mean for George Brown?
  • What broader initiatives regarding Indigenous education inform us in this work?
  • How does the strategy drive transformative institutional change?
