The Bridging the Gap (BTG) Program has been an influential and important program running in Ottawa area school boards: the Ottawa Carleton District School Board and the Ottawa Catholic School Board. It is in the developing stages of partnerships with the Conseil des Ecoles Catholiques du Centre-Est, and the Conseil des Ecoles Publiques de l’est de l’Ontario school boards.

The program has two major components: classroom presentations, and one-on-one support with students who are needing assistance with improving academic and/or social skills. This year, in addition to those components, camps were run in conjunction with other Inuuqatigiit programs, and two Inuit cultural resources were developed for teachers working in the Primary/Junior and Intermediate/Senior grades.
