Call to Action # 62: Education for Reconciliation (62-65)

Funding for indigenous Institutes

November 23, 2017

Investing an additional $56 million over three years beginning in 2017 for Indigenous Institutes to expand their capacity and strengthen their role as an important pillar in Ontario’s postsecondary education system. The changes would create a framework for ongoing collaboration between Ontario and Indigenous Institutes and would support a strong, independent Indigenous Institutes sector, overseen by an Indigenous controlled and governed council. The council would, among other functions, provide quality assurance for postsecondary diplomas, certificates and degree programs offered by Indigenous Institutes.
