Executive summary

This is the first progress report on the implementation of the First Nation, Métis and Inuit education policy framework (PDF) and provides an overview of progress made between 2007 and 2009. It details the steps the Ministry of Education, school boards, schools and community partners have taken to implement the strategies outlined in the framework and to support First Nation, Métis, and Inuit student success.

The First Nation, Métis and Inuit Education Policy Framework was released in 2007 and outlined the government's approach to supporting First Nation, Métis and Inuit learners in Ontario.

The framework identified two primary challenges to be addressed by the year 2016:

  • to improve achievement among First Nation, Métis, and Inuit students
  • to close the achievement gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students

We committed to providing progress reports every three years based on ten performance measures. We released three progress reports over implementation of the framework.
