The Manitoba First Nation, Métis, and Inuit Education Policy Framework reflects the educational aspirations, views and values of First Nation, Métis and Inuit people, and envisions full participation of First Nation, Métis and Inuit peoples in society through education, training, and labour market participation. As such it reflects “Mino Pimastiwin” or living the good life – the good life we all strive for to benefit ourselves, our families and all peoples.
The Framework provides the policy foundation and its associated goals and long term outcomes in the delivery of First Nation, Métis and Inuit education. This includes curriculum (and the inclusion of education about Manitoba First Nations, Métis, and Inuit histories, languages and cultures, and identities within it), student success, and the involvement of parents, families, and communities in K-12 education. All Manitobans, Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal alike are responsible for implementing the Framework as a response to the recommendations from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report and is intended as a framework for discussion.
