Learning from the Ontario Ministry of Education's First Nations, Métis and Inuit Focused Collaborative Inquiry Initiative 2013 - 2014

The Council of Ontario Directors of Education (CODE) is pleased to post the Listening Stone Project report completed by Dr. Susan Dion, lead researcher for this project. Dr. Dion recently completed her study for CODE and the Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat.

Dr. Dion's report certainly provides additional support for boards offering First Nations, Métis and Inuit focused CODE Summer Learning Programs.

The Listening Stone Project was informed by the voices of First Nations, Métis and Inuit community members as well as Indigenous and Non-Indigenous educators who participated in this initiative.

Started in the fall of 2013, the FNMI Focused Collaborative Inquiry Initiative (FNMICI) is intended to support success of First Nation, Métis and Inuit students.
