New fact sheets on the learning experiences of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit youth
In the first of two new fact sheets available today, the educational outcomes of First Nations youth relative to non-Indigenous youth are examined. This work is guided by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's calls to action.
The second fact sheet uses the Remoteness Index, a measure of proximity to service centres and population centres, to assess the relationship between remoteness and high school completion for First Nations people, Métis and Inuit.
The fact sheets First Nations youth: Experiences and outcomes in secondary and postsecondary learning (81-599-X) and Distance as a Factor for First Nations, Métis, and Inuit High School Completion ( 81-595-M) are now available.
