Education Jurisdiction Summit

February 22 @ 1:00 pm February 23 @ 10:00 pm

Our First Nations agree that we need to move towards healing and empowerment in education. Education Jurisdiction will recognize First Nations’ self-governance over education based on Indigenous peoples’ inherent right to self-determination given by the Creator.

Please join us February 22nd to the 23rd to look to next steps for the Education Jurisdiction process, learn from other groups across Canada.
