First Nation, Métis, Inuit Initiatives

The Ministry of Education has identified First Nation, Métis and Inuit  education as one of its key priorities with two primary challenges; to improve student achievement among First Nation, Métis and Inuit students and to close the gap between First Nation, Métis and Inuit and Non First Nation, Métis and Inuit students in the areas of literacy and numeracy, retention of students in school, graduation rates and advancement to post secondary studies.
The Algoma District School Board is committed to improving achievement for First Nations students.

Treaties Recognition Week: November 2 to 6, 2020

The first week of November is Treaties Recognition Week. This annual event honours the importance of treaties and helps students and residents of Ontario learn more about treaty rights and relationships. By learning more about our collective treaty rights and obligations, we can create greater understanding and nurture these relationships. 


Algoma District School Board acknowledges that we are in the Robinson-Huron, Robinson-Superior Treaty and Treaty 9 territories and that the land on which we are gathered is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Cree and Métis people. We acknowledge the importance of our relationship with our Indigenous partners as we move forward together in reconciliation.
