We are excited to be able to bring our Virtual Education Days back to teachers and students across Canada during the month of June, 2022. With the support of our partner BMO, we are able to bring the rich Indigenous culture to life for all students with interactive, educational and fun experiences that support the curriculum for all grades. For this year’s virtual Education Day series we will be providing participants with access to a password protected portal where they will be able to view pre-recorded and live videos and information packs for teachers. To gain access you will need to complete a different registration form which will be available soon.
