State of Aboriginal Learning: Background Paper for the "National Dialogue on Aboriginal Learning" (2005)

November 13 and 14, 2005 - Ottawa, Ontario

This background paper was prepared for the National Dialogue on Aboriginal Learning conference, held in Ottawa in November 2005. It was prepared in response to a call from the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL) to support the developmental work of the Aboriginal Learning Knowledge Centre.

The author describes the context for the CCL Aboriginal Learning Knowledge Centre; the principles established to guide the CCL in developing the centre; the learning contexts of each of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis; and potential priorities and directions for an Aboriginal Learning Knowledge Centre.

She points out that there are learning issues unique to each of the three Aboriginal groups of Canada: First Nations, Inuit and Métis. Therefore, the report amalgamates three separate research activities representing each of the three Aboriginal groups. These reports are provided in the document’s appendices.

This report is divided into four sections. Part A provides the context for the CCL Aboriginal Learning Knowledge Centre while Part B outlines the principles established to guide its development. Part C summarizes the respective learning contexts of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis. Part D identifies priorities for the centre.
