First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Studies: 

This document replaces The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 9 and 10: Native Studies, 1999 and The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 11 and 12: Native Studies, 2000. Beginning in September 2019, all courses in First Nations, Métis, and Inuit studies (formerly named “Native studies”) will be based on the expectations outlined in this document.

These courses were revised in order to strengthen content relating to contemporary and traditional First Nations, Métis, and Inuit cultures, histories, perspectives, and worldviews. This includes the legacy of the residential school system, treaties, legislation, and policies that directly impact First Nations, Métis, and Inuit individuals, communities, and nations. Ministry staff worked in collaboration with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit teachers, Elders, Knowledge Keepers, Senators, community representatives, and residential school survivors to make these revisions.

The courses are as follows: 

  • NAC10 – Expressions of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Cultures
  • NAC20 – First Nations, Métis, and Inuit in Canada
  • NBE3U/3C/3E – English: Understanding Contemporary First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Voices
