Indigenous Education

Land Acknowledgement
Official form of the TDSB Land Acknowledgement
After months of community consultations and working with leaders, elders, academics and knowledge keepers, the Urban Indigenous Education Centre has determined that the following statement will be the official form of the TDSB Land Acknowledgement:
“We acknowledge we are hosted on the lands of the Mississaugas of the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and the Wendat. We also recognize the enduring presence of all First Nations, Métis and the Inuit peoples”
"Nous reconnaissons que nous sommes accueillis sur les terres des Mississaugas des Anichinabés, de la Confédération Haudenosaunee et du Wendat. Nous voulons également reconnaître la pérennité de la présence des Premières Nations, des Métis et des Inuit."

At the Toronto District School Board, the Urban Indigenous Education Centre is pleased to offer a variety of services with the goal of enhancing Indigenous student well-being and achievement and ensuring Indigenous education for all educators and students in the TDSB. This mandate is approached by creating opportunities for learning from and with Indigenous communities through partnerships and professional learning, infusing Indigenous perspectives across the curriculum for all students, as well as by providing direct wrap-around supports to enhance the overall well-being achievement of First Nation, Métis and Inuit students throughout the TDSB.

The TDSB Urban Indigenous Education Centre (UIEC) has a referral system for creating opportunities for First Nation, Métis, and/or Inuit students to connect with the services offered by the UIEC. We offer a range of services to students and families, utilizing a holistic approach to support overall achievement and well-being. First Nations, Métis, and/or Inuit students can be referred to the UIEC by completing the Access/Consent to Service Form.
