WHAT:       Regional Education Information Session

WHO:         Presenters Martin Bayer and Kinoomaadziwin Education Body chair Lloyd Myke.

WHERE:     Holiday Inn, Georgian Room – Regent Street, Sudbury.

WHEN:       Tuesday, June 14, 5-8pm. Light refreshments will be served with presentation to follow.

Anishinabek Nation Grand Council Chief Patrick Madahbee says it’s important for our people to learn more about the proposed agreement and Anishinabek Education System.

“It is important to be informed and show up to vote – or mail in your ballot when the time comes,” says Grand Council Chief Madahbee. “I really hope we don’t lose the opportunity for Anishinaabe education and Anishinabek control of education because of lack of interest. I urge you to get involved. This is for our children.”

Information about the proposed agreement with Canada, fiscal arrangements and the Anishinabek Education System can be found at

The recognition by Canada of the Anishinabek First Nations’ jurisdiction over primary, elementary and secondary education, and the funding to operate the Anishinabek Education System (AES), a stand-alone, parallel, education system, makes up the proposed education self-government agreement with Canada.
