A First Nations Education Rally has been scheduled for Thursday September 23, 2010 in Ottawa in order to bring a strong, collective message to government that the chronic under-funding of our children’s education will not be tolerated --- our children deserve better and we will not remain quiet about this ongoing discrimination.

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO – First Nations government and economic development leaders gathered together this week with the governments of Canada and Ontario on a coordinated approach to build more sustainable economies in First Nations across Ontario. Productive partnerships, thriving businesses and good jobs are crucial to improving the quality of life in First Nations communities.

INAC has recently announced that the NCBR will continue for the 2009/10 fiscal year. A call package requesting applications for 2009-2010 will be attached shortly. We understand that this is a temporary solution which will alleviate some of the pressure for 2009-2010, and the Chiefs of Ontario Chiefs Committee on Social Services and the Social Services Coordination Unit will continue to work with INAC to ensure that resources from this program continue to flow to the communities.
