Belonging + EDI Updates and Resources

Treaties Recognition Week, 2023
In 2016, Ontario passed the first legislation of its kind in Canada declaring the first full week of November as Treaties Recognition Week. This year, Treaties Recognition Week is November 5-11, 2023.  Treaties Recognition Week helps students and the public learn about treaties from diverse Indigenous perspectives and encourages greater understanding of the importance of treaties in Ontario.
Secret Path Week – October 17 to 22 
Chanie Wenjack was born on January 19, 1954, in Ogoki Post, a remote Anishinaabe reserve in northwestern Ontario. In 1963, he and his sisters were sent to the Cecilia Jeffrey Residential School in Kenora, ON. Three years later, at the age of twelve, Chanie ran away from the school, attempting to go home to his family 600 km away. He died of hunger and exposure on Oct. 22, 1966, a week after he escaped. His body was found by a railway worker 60 km from the school. His tragic story is like so many stories of Indigenous children who never returned home from residential schools.
