The University of Toronto has received an anonymous donation of $5 million for the improvement of Indigenous education and research. The money is expected to contribute towards policy changes and a greater focus on literacy during its first year. It is also expected to aid new partnerships among Aboriginal communities, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations to improve Indigenous education. Building on its work on literacy, the OISE Indigenous Education Initiative will also pursue research in related areas such as Indigenous languages and language revitalization, education governance and literacy infrastructure. The gift is the largest donation ever made to a Canadian faculty of education for Indigenous education research.
