									                           Call for Workshop Proposals
                           The resources of time, talent, funding and Indigenous knowledge that we put into the
                           education of Aboriginal learners have long-term benefits for those learners and for all
                           of us.

                           At this conference, we will explore how we, as educators, schools, communities, and
                           support organizations, can strengthen our relationships with one another and with
                           students in order to benefit Aboriginal learners. Through the workshops and panel
                           discussions, we will see examples of how strong relationships create the foundation
                           for quality Aboriginal education.

                           Join us! The provincial Aboriginal education conference drew more than 850
                           participants last year and it provides a major forum for networking, communication
                           and learning.
