The Treaty 4 Education Conference (T4EC) has been a highly anticipated annual learning event for the past 12 years. This conference offers an opportunity for educators and lifelong learners to network, share promising and effective practices and contribute to the Treaty 4 learning community for the benefit of future generations.
The 13th Annual Treaty 4 Education Conference: Honour, Embrace and Implement Treaty Rights to Education will take place April 19-21, 2011 at the Queensbury Convention Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan. The goal of the year’s conference is to share strategies and successes related to student retention, literacy/numeracy and community engagement.
