Saskatchewan teachers believe they are being blamed for increasing education costs in the province, the provincial teachers' association says.

Recent budgetary announcements from the governing Saskatchewan Party revealed it had decided against funding the 1.9 per cent raise in teachers' salaries for 2016/17 that had been already agreed upon during bargaining.

Duncan, B.C.-based writer Jennifer Manuel created an online campaign asking Canadians to pledge to read the entire 380-page document. Manuel calls it The TRC Reading Challenge.

The Government of Canada currently provides financial support to status First Nations and Inuit students through the Post-Secondary Student Support Program (PSSSP). Funding increases for this program were capped at two per cent in 1996, and this cap has been maintained ever since.

BlackLivesMatter-TO's summer school is starting this summer in Toronto

This July, BlackLivesMatter-TO is creating a Freedom school.  It is a 3 week long summer program for children aged 4-10.  

There is a glaring lack of educational materials for children aged 4-10 that teach about Black Canadian and diasporic history.  This means that the Freedom School will have to create engaging, educational materials for the Freedom School participants.  The Committee will be working with Black artists and allies to develop these materials. Find out more about how you can help sponsor some of these materials, and become eligible for great thank you gifts, here
