A drawing of a child looking down, with an eagle feather in their hair. Remembering the Children Society is wrapped around the child in a circle.Remembering the Children Society presents a panel discussion on the inclusion of Indian Residential Schools history in the new Alberta curriculum.

Please join us to listen to qualified and knowledgeable education partners discuss their perspective on why the Alberta government needs to “Make age-appropriate curriculum on residential schools, Treaties, and Aboriginal peoples’ historical and contemporary contributions to Canada a mandatory education requirement for Kindergarten to Grade Twelve students.”

Our goal is that the participants will gain increased knowledge and understanding of this issue and be prepared to share their feedback when Alberta Education Ministry allows for public input in Stage 5 of the development of the new curriculum later in 2021.
