In 2011, Assembly of First Nations Chief Shawn Atleo, in his Call to Action on Education, asked all Canadians to support a simple premise: that a secure fiscal framework is needed for funding education in Aboriginal communities — something that is enjoyed by every segment of Canadian society except for First Nations.
In support of this premise, the National Reading Campaign is facilitating a series of three policy round tables over three years. The round tables will bring together key thought leaders, decision makers, and policy leaders to explore approaches and to create an effective agenda to promote access to reading on reserves for children and youth, and to create a much-needed common agenda to champion reading and reading policies for Aboriginal children.
This initiative is sponsored by TD Bank Group.
