HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

Findings from People for Education’s 2022-23 Annual Ontario School Survey (AOSS) indicate that Ontario’s publicly funded schools are showing signs of progress in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) Calls to Action for education.

It has been eight years since the TRC issued its Calls to Action to support reconciliation in Canada, with Calls to Action 6-12 and 62-66 specifically addressing children, youth, and education. While some progress has been made, a recent report from the Yellowhead Institute found that only 13 of the 94 Calls to Action have been fully implemented, and none of these completed calls are those focused on education.

Using data from People for Education’s annual survey, based on responses from 1,044 schools across all the province’s 72 publicly funded school boards, this report provides an overview of how Ontario is doing in response to the TRC’s Calls to Action for education, and the progress Ontario schools have made on implementing Indigenous education strategies and programs over the last decade.
