CICan Indigenous Education Symposium

, | - EST
  • Hotel Pur
    395, rue de la Couronne
    Québec City, Quebec

Join us for our first in-person Indigenous Education Symposium in more than two years! This year, leaders in Indigenous education and those passionate about meaningful reconciliation will be gathering in Québec City, on the unceded territory of the Huron-Wendat Nation.

Education is essential to lasting reconciliation with Indigenous communities. In fact, seven of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action relate directly to education, including eliminating educational and employment gaps between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians, increasing available funding, and developing culturally appropriate and relevant programming.

Reconciliation also requires collective action. The symposium will stimulate discussion and reflection on our shared visions and responsibilities when it comes to advancing truth and reconciliation. Topics will include:

  • Developing and delivering programs that continue to meet the learning needs of Indigenous students (including a focus on community-based delivery models and indigenous-led research) while enhancing their participation in the economic life of their communities, provinces and the global society.
  • Supporting the well-being, participation, engagement, and achievements of Indigenous students
  • Protecting and promoting Indigenous cultures and languages
  • Valuing Indigenous knowledge
