It’s Our Time AFN Education Tool Kit

by Assembly of First Nations

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

Welcome to the It's Our Time AFN Education Tool Kit.

The Assembly of First Nations has developed the It's Our Time First Nations Tool Kit as the basis of a comprehensive strategy to reach out to First Nations students, teachers, schools, communities and the Canadian public at large. The resource is designed to bring together First Nations and non-First Nations people and foster a spirit of cooperation, understanding, and action. 

A number of events have led to a greater commitment on the part of Canada and Canadians to reinforce the importance of improving education outcomes for First Nations:

  • On September 13, 2007, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). 
  • On June 9, 2008, the Prime-Minister of Canada made an official apology to former students of Indian Residential Schools. 
  • On June 21, 2010, the policy statement titled First Nations Control of First Nations Education was endorsed by Chiefs in Assembly. 
  • On November 12, 2010, Canada endorsed the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. 
  • On February 27, 2012, Shannen's Dream, a motion for equity in First Nations schools, was supported unanimously in the House of Commons. 
  • On December 7, 2015 the Prime Minister of Canada addressed Assembly of First Nations leaders and committed to resettling Canada's relationship with First Nations, stating "It is time for a renewed, nation-to-nation relationship with First Nations peoples, one that understands that the constitutionally guaranteed rights of First Nations in Canada are not an inconvenience but rather a sacred obligation".
