Indigenous focus Graduation Requirement

Posted on March 09, 2022

Proposed Change to the B.C. Graduation Program

As part of the provincial government’s commitments to truth, reconciliation and anti-racism, the Ministry of Education is implementing a mandatory course or bundle of credits related to First Peoples as part of graduation requirements in British Columbia. The new requirement will build on the education sector’s work to date, integrate Indigenous content into the provincial K-12 curriculum, and support students to graduate with a deeper understanding and knowledge of First Peoples’s perspectives, histories, and cultures.
