Newsletter for September

Welcome Message

Welcome back to a new school year and a new year of connection throughout the Indigenous Adult Education Network.

The beginning of the school year is always a magical time – full of energy and hope for our learners and our communities.

Before we know it, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation also known as Orange Shirt Day, September 30, will be upon us.

Many organizations are now declaring a commitment to honour the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action. It will be exciting to seeing these commitments take shape in action.

Nia:wen, Welàlin, Tshinaskumitin, Migwetc, Merci, Thank you
