State of Inuit Learning in Canada (2005)

This document was written to provide a perspective on the Inuit context for the Canadian Council on Learning’s (CCL’s) Knowledge Centres, with particular focus on the Aboriginal Learning Centre.

The authors have provided a brief history of Inuit education, with information about traditional educational practices, residential schools, and federal schools initiated by missionaries. They go on to discuss the current formal Kindergarten-Grade 12 and postsecondary systems; adult learning; early childhood learning; and health and learning. They also list potential partners the CCL could work with to involve Inuit people in learning.

The authors have also included a number of success stories that describe programs aimed at improving Inuit involvement and success in education.
