We recognize that Manitoba is on Treaty 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10 Territories and the ancestral lands of the Anishinaabe, Anishininewuk, Dakota Oyate, Denesuline, Ininiwak and Nehethowuk peoples. We acknowledge Manitoba is located on the Homeland of the Red River Métis. We acknowledge northern Manitoba includes lands that were and are the ancestral lands of the Inuit.

More Information

We respect the spirit and intent of Treaties and Treaty Making and remain committed to working in partnership with First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in the spirit of truth, reconciliation and collaboration.

In keeping with our commitment to Truth and Reconciliation, we acknowledge the important role that education and schools play to ensure we collectively take time to think about, learn about, honour and remember those who attended residential and day schools and those who did not come home. Facing difficult truths helps us on our paths toward Truth and Reconciliation.

Our response to the Commission on K to 12 Education targets a deep commitment to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Calls to Action. The TRC report includes 94 Calls to Action for all Canadians. The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation and the collection of TRC responses are found here:

Manitoba schools are excited to welcome students and school staff back to full-time, in-person learning this fall. After more than two years of public health restrictions and periods of disrupted learning, students across Manitoba will be able to experience the full range of what school has to offer. Schools will offer the full K to 12 curriculum and all the extracurricular activities that bring the school experience to life. A variety of electives, sports, recreation, tournaments, band, and choir are just a few examples of what can be expected for the coming year.

As Manitoba teachers and school leaders welcome students this fall, the focus will be on re-establishing relationships and routines. To support educators and students, we have worked with school leaders, administrators, and partners to identify shared priorities for the upcoming school year by

  • focusing on re-engaging students
  • promoting mental health and well-being
  • responding to literacy and numeracy needs
  • supporting students with diverse learning needs
