Education ministers from across the country will meet at the First Nations University of Canada (FNUniv) in Regina for the 110th meeting of the Council of Education, Canada (CMEC), where further education and indigenization will be discussed.
According to a provincial government release, the meeting of provincial and regional ministers responsible for education will be held on July 5 and 6.
“I am thrilled to welcome our colleagues and Indigenous representatives from across the country to Saskatchewan and showcase the extraordinary work going on in our province,” CMEC President and Minister of Advanced Education Gordon Wyant said in a media release.
“The seminar on Indigenous Education will also be a great opportunity to learn from Indigenous representatives and build on CMEC’s Indigenous Education Plan to support the education of Indigenous children and youth.”
The seminar will give teachers and administrators an opportunity to learn from leaders of indigenous post-secondary institutions, with a focus on end-to-end education. Participants will learn a holistic approach to education and the Indigenous student experience from a panel of experts, elders, scholars and Indigenous students.
