Call to Action # 9

We call upon the federal government to prepare and publish annual reports comparing funding for the education of First Nations children on and off reserves, as well as educational and income attainments of Aboriginal peoples in Canada compared with non-Aboriginal people.

Why “Not Started”?

Latest report on the official government website “Delivering on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action” is for the 2016 – 2017 fiscal year.

Report does not address federal funding for schools off-reserve vs on reserve nor educational and income attainments for Indigenous vs non-Indigenous peoples. See also response to C2A # 8 for budget details. 

The 2019 Indigenous Economic Progress Report released on June 10, 2019 delivers specific details on Average Income, Unemployment and Education Attainment for First Nations, Métis and Inuit vs non-Indigenous Canadians.
