Lack of education on aboriginal taxes - StarPhoenix

Lack of education on aboriginal taxes - StarPhoenix | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"The Social Science Research Laboratory at the University of Saskatchewan - the only facility of its kind in Canada - created the Taking the Pulse survey in its group analysis lab, which includes multiple departments from across the faculty of arts and sciences. Their research found many people have a mistaken belief in the level of taxes paid by aboriginal people.

 

Nothing is certain but death and taxes - and despite what many Saskatchewan residents may think - this rings true for aboriginal people as well."

 

- Kerry Benjoe, Leader-Post

 

*Good article about taxes and Aboriginal people.

First Nations language program 'should be mandatory,' parent says

First Nations language program 'should be mandatory,' parent says | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

*Younger students at two Thunder Bay elementary schools will soon be able to learn Ojibwe, but at least one parent says efforts to teach First Nations languages should go further.

 

This fall, grade 6 students at Algonquin and Ecole Gron Morgan elementary schools will be included in the Lakehead Public School Board’s native language pilot program. Previously, students could enroll in grade 7.

 

For Nicole McKay — whose daughter is a student in the program — learning Ojibwe is as important as learning French.

"It should be mandatory,” McKay said. “If they're going to be doing that for one language they should be doing that for another language — especially the First Nations language because it's part of the history of this place." *
