First Nations students want new school building and a residence to end billeting
Nov 29, 2018
Indigenous Services Minister Jane Philpott says she supports efforts by a group of northern Ontario First Nations youth for a new high school and an end to the billeting system that adds to the struggles of students who face “constant fear” in Thunder Bay.
Youth in remote and fly-in First Nations in northern Ontario must attend high school in urban centres and Thunder Bay is one of the cities with a destination high school.
Philpott met Monday on Parliament Hill with 10 First Nations students who are currently attending Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School.
