Treaties Recognition Week Nov. 4-10

November 05, 2018

Treaties recognition week iamge

In 2016, the Ontario government passed the Treaties Recognition Week Act to honour the importance of treaties and to help all Ontarians learn more about treaty rights and treaty relationships. This legislation designates the first week of November as Treaties Recognition Week and is intended to bring awareness to the treaty relationship that exists between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in the province of Ontario. During Treaties Recognition Week schools are encouraged to help students understand why treaties matter to all Ontarians.

 

This year, Treaties Recognition Week will take place from Sunday November 4th until Saturday November 10th 2018. All students, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, are enriched by learning about the histories, cultures, contributions and perspectives of First nations, Metis and Inuit peoples of Canada. Treaties Recognition Week provides an opportunity for schools to raise awareness of the treaty relationship that exists between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Canada.

    We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.

  • Scholarship

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
