End the Gap in Funding for First Nations Schools

First Nations schools get 30%-50% less government funding for their education than similar schools off reserve. Each year that we spend less on First Nations education we tell First Nations children that their dreams matter less. This is the wrong message to send to any child. 

That's why we are calling on all political parties to work together to #EndtheGap and provide fair funding to First Nations children right now! It's time to stop using First Nations' kids futures as political bargaining chips and to support their humanity. The Liberal Party's pledge to end the gap after their four year mandate is not adequate for children who need support now.

All kids have dreams. Some get less. Together, we will do better.
