What is this engagement about?
As part of the Province of British Columbia’s commitments to truth, reconciliation, and anti-racism, the Ministry of Education will be implementing an Indigenous-focused graduation requirement for all students.
The proposed model for the new requirement would allow secondary students to meet the requirement through a variety of existing and new course options, beginning in the 2023/24 school year.
Timeline: March 7, 2022, to April 22, 2022. (completed)
How to participate
Citizens had the opportunity to provide feedback on which courses could meet the new requirement as well as what resources and information students, families and schools will need moving forward.
Students, parents/caregivers, school/school district staff, Indigenous communities and the public were encouraged to complete the online feedback form.
Feedback received through this engagement will inform a finalized implementation plan for the new graduation requirement, which will be made available in August 2022.
