Circle of Light 2009

Circle of Light 2009 First Nation, Métis and Inuit Education Conference, was held on November 24 to 26, 2009 in Toronto.

The conference theme, Energizing our Partnerships in Education, reflects the Ministry's commitment to building strong ties and positive learning relationships between Aboriginal communities and education partners to support all students in Ontario.

The conference provided an opportunity for provincial and First Nation educators to participate in joint professional development on Aboriginal education initiatives, and included a series of workshops aligned with the goals and strategies of the Ontario First Nation, Métis and Inuit Education Policy Framework.

Workshop presenters included representatives from provincial and First Nation school systems, academics and other First Nation, Métis and Inuit education partners.
