Aboriginal Success Story
AANDCanada, Feb 14, 2013
Celebrating positive changes, partnerships, and growth in Aboriginal communities, The Inuuqatigiit Centre for Inuit Children, Youth and Families was approached, late in 2012, to feature its Kindergarten program. This program is funded by a partnership between the City of Ottawa, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, and the Public Health Agency of Canada. Serving the largest urban Inuit population in Canada, the Inuuqatigiit Centre for Inuit Children, Youth and Families provides education programming with additional cultural content. Children who attend the Inuuqatigiit Centre for Inuit Children, Youth and Families not only follow the same curriculum as any other child in Ontario, but they also get the added benefit of learning their own culture and language.
