President Chartier Speaks at the Canadian Teachers’ Federation President’s Forum

President Chartier outlined the challenges facing Métis in the Canadian School system and the tremendous opportunities for the Canadian economy if school systems can work together to improve educational outcomes. As President of the largest Indigenous Nation in North America (approx. 400,000) that is situated across five provinces and the NWT, he spoke to the jurisdictional and coordination challenges of providing cultural content that recognizes the Métis Nation and its contributions to Canada. He also provided an overview of the work of the three Métis educational institutes on the Prairies (Louis Riel Institute, Gabriel Dumont Institute and Ruperts Land Institute). President Chartier called upon participants to work with representatives of the Métis Nation to develop active agendas to identify measures to improve educational outcomes and invited delegates to work with the Métis Nation at the planned Metis Nation Education Seminar to be held in the fall of 2013.

President Chartier stated: “The invitation to speak at the CTF’s 5th Annual President ‘s Forum provided an excellent opportunity to develop a relationship between the Métis Nation and the CTF on Métis education.”

Other speakers included Mary Simon, former president of ITK, and Sheelah McLean, co-founder of the Idle No More movement, etc.
