Treaties Recognition Week is November 1-7, 2021
November 1, 2021
Students and staff at the Upper Grand District School Board will continue their Indigenous Education learning during Treaties Recognition Week.
In 2016, Ontario designated the first week of November as Treaties Recognition Week. This year, Treaties Recognition Week is November 1-7, 2021. This annual event honours the importance of treaties and helps students learn more about treaty rights and relationships. By learning more about our collective treaty rights and obligations, we can create greater understanding and nurture these relationships.
This week is an opportunity for meaningful learning and awareness in our schools. The Upper Grand District School Board’s First Nations, Métis and Inuit Lead, Colinda Clyne, has arranged a series of livestreams for students during Treaties Recognition Week. The livestream sessions are led by Indigenous guests and classes can register for the sessions appropriate for their grade division.

Schools have also been provided with vetted resources to further their classroom learning, including resources for Kindergarten to Grade 6 and resources for Grades 7 to 12.
