Speaking out on the Alberta Draft K-6 Social Studies Curriculum

At the Chinook Winds Regional Council Gathering in May 2021, a petition was passed to write to the Alberta Provincial Government regarding the Draft Kindergarten to Grade 6 Studies Curriculum. The proposal was brought forward by Ralph Connor Memorial United, Canmore, AB and the Being Good Relations Network/Circle of Chinook Winds Region and Northern Spirit Region and laid out how the proposed new Kindergarten to Grade 6 Social Studies Curriculum violates the agreement made with Alberta and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on April 14, 2014.

Chinook Winds Presider Vicki McPhee and Executive Minister Treena Duncan have written to the Alberta Government on behalf of the Regional Council.

Communities of Faith and individuals are encouraged to write letters as well. You can find a draft of a letter that you can adapt for writing your own letter. Download HERE  Any questions, please email Chris Mah Poy, Justice and Networks Support.
