Treaty Resources for K-12 Educators

In 2016, Ontario passed legislation declaring the first week of November as Treaties Recognition Week. This annual event honours the importance of treaties and encourages all residents of Ontario and Turtle Island to learn more about treaty rights, relationships, and responsibilities. Through education, we can create a greater understanding of the role we all play in upholding treaty rights.

Learn more about Treaties in our Treaty Reource Guide, developed by Indigenous Teacher Education Program Coordinator, Liv Rondeau.
