GDI Evaluation – Evaluation of the Gabriel Dumont Institute of Native Studies and Applied Research

FINAL REPORT

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

In operation for 27 years, the Gabriel Dumont Institute of Native Studies and Applied Research (GDI) was established in Saskatchewan with a mandate to promote Métis culture through development and distribution of relevant materials and collections, and to deliver Métis-specific educational programs and services. In order to examine the rationale, design and delivery, and program and cultural outcomes of GDI, the Saskatchewan Ministry of Advanced Education, Employment and Labour (AEEL) and GDI have commissioned an evaluation of the Institute. This evaluation will focus on a sub-set of GDI activities – specifically, the Saskatchewan Urban Native Teacher Education Program (SUNTEP), the Publishing Department and the Dumont Technical Institute (DTI), including Adult Basic Education (ABE) and Skills Training.

Anngutivik – Second Term Report 2007/2008

Message from the President

This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Kativik School Board. I have been with the Board almost the whole time in different capacities, and I am very proud of all the accomplishments that have been made throughout the years: From small school buildings to large schools, from no legally-qualified Inuit teachers to over 100 to date, from no Inuktitut teaching materials to an abundant amount. And to add to that, we did not have resources such as Inuit administrators, Special Education teachers, Teacher Training counsellors or student counsellors.

ECO Canada Contaminated Sites Report

WHO WILL DO THE CLEANUP?

Canadian Labour Requirements for Remediation and Reclamation of Contaminated Sites
2006 – 2009
ECO Canada

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

In the first three years of the new millennium, Canada’s environmental workforce grew at a rate 60% faster than the growth of the Canadian workforce as a whole. The environment sector is currently experiencing a significant shortage of workers, with the appropriate skills and knowledge, to meet its full economic and employment potential. The demand for qualified environmental workers continues to outstrip the supply and the future additional stress of reclamation and remediation activities for contaminated sites cleanup will create a severe labour shortage.

I The Métis Nation of Ontario

Prior to Canada’s crystallization as a nation in west central North America, the Métis people emerged out of the relations of Indian women and European men. The initial offspring of these Indian and European unions were individuals who possessed mixed ancestry. Subsequent intermarriage between Métis women and Métis men resulted in the genesis of a new Aboriginal people with a distinct identity, culture and consciousness – the Métis.

Justice is Equality – Post-Corbière Report

Introduction

The right to vote is a fundamental human right. It cannot be denied to First Nations citizens, whose communities rely in large part on the equal respect for the dignity of each individual member forming the collective. If First Nations argue that the inherent right to self-government is a constitutionally protected right under section 35(1) of the Constitution Act, 1982, then First Nations should be held to a high standard of accountability regarding their electoral processes.
