2018 Ontario Social Studies Curriculum

Teachers will deliver to Ontario students the new 2018 Social Studies Gr 1-8 Curriculum starting this fall. The revisions in the 2018 curriculum support Ontario’s commitment to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action. These revisions were made in collaboration with Indigenous teachers, Elders, Knowledge Keepers, Senators, Indigenous community representatives, and residential school survivors. The revisions focus on strengthening students’ knowledge and understanding of Indigenous histories, cultures, perspectives, contributions, and ways of knowing, as well as of the history of the residential school system, treaties, and the Indian Act.
