Future of Our Community Education Group Disscussions (LETE)

 The Listuguj Education, Training & Employment Directorate is looking to hear from community members about the future of education for Listuguj. We want to hear from you about education planning for our community!

Why participate?

Through these engagements, we are aiming to better understand the needs and hopes for high school education, and education governance more broadly. We want to know the options for providing education that supports Mi’gmaq culture, language, worldviews – and importantly, students! This information will help us plan the future of education in our community.

During these group discussions, we hope you will share with us:

  • When you think about our youth’s future, and their identity as a Mi’gmaw person, what do you wish for them? What ways can a high school support that?
  • How can a high school best support culture, Mi’gmaw identity, language transmission, and revitalization while also ensuring academic success?
  • How can and should parents, caregivers and community members at large be involved in the governance of the Listuguj education system?

All who participate will receive a $50 gift card and a catered meal in recognition of your time and contributions.
